ITD Transportation Budget Increases From Last Year

The Idaho Transportation Department will get about $562 million for fiscal year 2012, according to a budget the Joint Finance-Appropriations Committee approved Monday.

That's up 16.3% - or $78.8 million - from last year. The budget includes $54.5 million in federal stimulus money that is being carried over into the next budget. Without that money, the increase would only be 5%.

Idaho's transportation budget includes money from the federal government, registration fees and gas taxes but does not rely on the state's general fund.
