Task Force Announces First Meeting For June 30

An eight-member legislative task force created as part of a session-ending transportation funding deal between Gov. Butch Otter and lawmakers will meet for the first time on June 30 at 10 a.m.

The panel is charged with identifying alternative funding sources for the Idaho State Police and the Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation, which are scheduled to lose millions in gas tax funding on July 1, 2010. That gas tax money will be shifted to road work.
