State Money Behind Transportation, Water and Education 

CapitolAt the current legislative session, state leaders announced unanimous support for putting money into transportation, the state water plan and may be putting back some of what was cut in public education. With less than three weeks left, however, ideology and political partisanship may stand in the way of getting any of those measures accomplished. A new legislative update is posted here.
