Panel Working On Ways To Increase Arizona Transportation Funding

Among the issues state lawmakers will likely take up this year is transportation funding, specifically, how to pay for needed improvements and upgrades.

A committee has been working to come up with ideas for ways to do that.

The panel looked at areas including dedicated revenue sources for interstate highways, local streets and roads, highway patrols and the highway-user revenue fund.

John Ragan is chief operating officer at the Arizona Chamber of Commerce. He also chaired the Surface Transportation Funding Task Force.
