A Common Sense Approach

Here is one highlight in a great article from Minnesota Majority on the bridge collapse and a gas tax increase.

"Fact #1: Minnesota already spends more than most other state [sic] on our roads and bridges. In 2006, the state transportation budget exceeded $2.3 billion! There’s simply no evidence to suggest that state engineers have been forced to compromise bridge maintenance due to a lack of funding. We may have an issue with how spending is prioritized, but we sure don't appear to have a lack of adequate funding."
