Huge Cuts at VDOT
The next round of VDOT funding cuts are under consideration today:
Roadway maintenance ($277 million), highway construction ($255 million), administrative services ($115.2 million) and mass transit ($46.3 million) are among the areas slated for major cuts to achieve the $851.5 million in savings.
Want to guess whose road funding is going to be cut? Here is a clue: The Valley has never raised sufficient tax revenues to pay our way on road funding.
I'm sure this can all be cleared up by Mark Obenshain and his Delegate acolytes - with an "outside audit", the sale of the liquor stores, and some fairy dust!
