Our recent review of state legislatures is now available. Over the past month, several events have taken place in transportation funding advocacy. Missouri voters defeated a ballot measure August 5 to increase the state sales tax by three-fourths-cents to fund transportation infrastructure projects.

Looking forward, several states have transportation ballot measures planned for the upcoming November election.
