Lt. Governor Norton Says State Leadership Behind Roadway Funding Proposals

The Colorado State Transportation Commission approves a final list of projects to be funded by two legislative referendums, and Lieutenant Governor Jane Norton says the executive branch is fully behind the funding mechanisms.

Norton was in Grand Junction, Friday, advising members of the Citizen's Emergency Preparedness Committee and also making an appearance at the monthly Republican Party luncheon. There, the Lieutenant Governor talked about overcoming the complacency that cost the Republicans several high offices, including a senate and house seat.

Before that meeting she spoke of the need to overcome voter apprehension about the transporation funding proposals.

If paased by voters this novenber, Referendum C will allow the state, for the next five years, to keep revenues in excess of TABOR limits. Companion Referendum D authorizes the Department of Transportation to issue up to $1.7 billion in bonds for highway projects around the state.
