Transportation coalition calls for new capital bill
The Transportation for Illinois Coalition called for a new state capital infrastructure bill at a meeting Monday, that included representatives from municipalities, materials producers and engineers.
Jennifer Morrison, managing director of Transportation for Illinois Coalition, said the purchasing power of motor-fuel tax money is dropping with the rate of inflation increasing, people driving less with higher gas prices, and drivers using more fuel-efficient vehicles.
“There are fewer gallons of gas being purchased,” Morrison said. “As those gallons declined, so do the revenues to support the roads. That is going on at the same time construction costs are dramatically increasing.”
