Guv’s transportation funding task force to hold third meeting

Gov. Butch Otter's transportation funding task force will hold its third meeting on Wednesday, Dec. 2, starting at 10 a.m. at the J.R. Williams Building in Boise. A national consultant and former Utah transportation director will make a presentation about transportation funding across the country; you can see the full agenda and other info here. The task force is in the midst of an 18-month study of options for adequately funding transportation in Idaho; it's due to report back to the governor by December of 2010. “The individuals, families and businesses using our highways also are financing them. They deserve real assurance that they are getting what they pay for from our vital transportation corridors,” Otter said.
