ODOT Advisory Group Looks at Funding for Transportation
Adequate funding for infrastructure — notably Ohio’s roads and bridges — is a top priority for economic development in the state.
In the face of declining gas tax revenues and changes in transportation technology, Governor DeWine and ODOT established the Governor’s Advisory Committee on Transportation Infrastructure.
The final report of this advisory committee was issued in February, and includes many opinions about transportation infrastructure issues and in particular how to bring up revenue to cover needs in the future. The report notes that the “only funding mechanism that generated broad consensus was an increase in the motor fuel user fee.”
