Governor Otter Asks For Funding Increase For Roads

Gov. Butch Otter brought his 'road show' to Coeur d'Alene yesterday, asking for input from area leaders and citizens on how to pay for Idaho's road 'crisis.'

The Idaho Transportation Department says an additional $240 million is needed each year to combat rising construction prices, deteriorating roads and highways and an expected drop in federal funding.

But some citizens who attended the meeting aren't happy about a proposed funding increase.

Here's the story from the CDA Press.

KMPO 'Special Correspondent' Jeff Selle spent the day at the meeting yesterday and will (hopefully) post his take on it later today.
