Support for transportation funding package on shaky ground

While Governor Butch Otter's office was tentatively supportive of the House transportation package that would generate roughly $70 million for transportation annually, that support could now be fading.

Eye on Boise reported earlier today on the legislature's successful veto over-ride on drug treatment funding. Some are now speculating that the over ride move apparently didn't set well with the governor. They believe the governor may have vetoed a bill that would have provided the legislators with new laptop computers for the next legislative session.

Worse yet, they are saying that may have prompted the governor to reel back some of his initial support for the transportation funding package we reported on two threads below this one. Check out this quote from Otter's spokesman here at Eye on Boise. Hold your breath, this one could get interesting...
