Busick Looking For Increased Transportation Funding

Last year, the Legislature approved an additional 100 million dollars from general revenue for maintenance on the state’s lettered routes. State Representative Danny Busick of Newtown says he was apprehensive about supporting that.

He does not want to see the state turning these roads over to local jurisdictions.

Busick says because the cost of the funded projects was higher than expected, he would like to see another 100 or 200 million dollars appropriated this year.
