Fund shortfall may impair Oklahoma road projects, Sen. Jim Inhofe says

CHRIS CASTEEL, Washington Bureau Published: June 3, 2009
George Voinovich, R-Ohio, said the federal gas tax would have to be increased so funding could keep pace with the nation’s need for road improvements.

But Inhofe, R-Tulsa, told reporters that he wouldn’t agree to a tax increase.

He acknowledged that the gas tax, at its current level, won’t generate enough money to pay for the next highway bill.

But he added that the administration should instead shift some of the new money it is planning to spend on social programs to transportation.
