Colorado DOT on Trump Infrastructure Plan: Been There, Done That

KUNC reports, “President Trump’s infrastructure plan dramatically cuts the federal government’s investment in road and transportation projects and instead calls upon states and corporations to shoulder most of the cost. . . . But that plan won’t work in Colorado — the state has already done it. ‘The reality is that Colorado has already looked at those options. We have pulled every rabbit out of the hat to try to think about how we add additional funding into the system . . . ,’ said Amy Ford, representative of the state Department of Transportation.”
