08/14 - Down the Road: Our Transportation Future

What should the state’s transportation priorities be?

Louisiana collects $630 million per year in federal highway dollars and 20-cents from each gallon of gasoline purchased for its own transportation fund. Louisiana’s current state budget siphons $60 million from its Transportation Trust Fund to cover costs of the Louisiana State Police. In the next 30 years, Louisiana's economic health and quality of life may be at risk because of transportation funding challenges. What should the state’s transportation priorities be? Where are the sources for funding? Is it time for a new funding stream at both the state and federal level? Louisiana Public Square looks for answers on “Down the Road: Our Transportation Future” Wednesday, August 27 at 7 p.m. on LPB HD. (Record date: Tuesday, August 26.)
