Otter Gets Transportation Bill Passed

Gov. Butch Otter is playing hardball now. He vetoed 10 bills yesterday, after threatening to veto key budget bills if the House and Senate didn’t pass a transportation funding increase by Wednesday night.

It did the trick though, the Senate finally voted 21-14 in favor of an amended bill that would raise Idaho’s gas tax by 3 cents a gallon next year and another 3 cents the following year,

Here's the story.
