Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission http://news.stlpublicradio.org en Commentary: One-Cent Sales Tax For Transportation May Not Help Cities http://news.stlpublicradio.org/post/commentary-one-cent-sales-tax-transportation-may-not-help-cities <p>The Missouri Legislature is considering asking voters to raise the sales tax by 1 percent (SJR 48) to fund transportation projects. For the first time, transit, bike, pedestrian and passenger rail projects would be eligible to compete for funding.</p><p>But this proposition is risky for non-highway modes of transportation. Why? That is the same funding source cities, transit agencies, bike and pedestrian interests, transportation development districts and community improvement districts are using to make local improvements in the absence of state funding.</p><p><strong>History</strong></p> Wed, 19 Feb 2014 04:27:48 +0000 Thomas R.
