The highway lobby


The highway lobby imperative is to build roads, so it's no surprise that it hasn't given up searching for a way to annex general revenues for highway building. But, again, we miss Henry Gray, the former highway director who, for a time, won some degree of equity in highway construction financing. Nobody since even bothers to pay a breath of lip service to the notion of making the most damaging highway users -- the truckers who pound the interstates to rubble -- pay a fairer share of the eternal cost they create on the state's roadways. No, the sole focus is taking it out of other services.
