An updated report with information on over 160 transportation funding initiatives introduced in 2015—what’s passed, what’s failed, and what’s still pending—is now available.
So far in 2015:
- Washington, Nebraska, Georgia, Idaho, Utah, South Dakota, Iowa, and Delaware all passed legislation to ensure recurring transportation funding;
- Kentucky, North Carolina and Vermont passed bills to stabilize their variable-rate gas tax formulas in order to prevent loss of revenue;
- Connecticut, Georgia, Massachusetts, North Dakota, New York, Minnesota, Mississippi and New Mexico passed one-time transportation funding legislation; and
- Maine, Texas and Louisiana have upcoming transportation funding-related ballot measures.
Other states continuing to actively seek transportation funding in 2015 include California, where lawmakers are currently in special session; Michigan, whose legislators will return in September to resume their search for a transportation funding compromise; and New Jersey, where state leaders have declared intent to introduce transportation funding legislation in the fall.
