Otter disappointed in lack of transportation funds

Governor Butch Otter says he accomplished many of his goals during this last legislative session, but he is extremely disappointed that the Legislature did not fund the $240 million annual shortfall in transportation needs. According to this AP story , the governor said he did everything he could to urge lawmakers to come up with new revenue streams, but it just wasn't enough to get 'er done.

Now that the session is over, how do you think we should address this issue?
