How Much of Transportation Spending Goes to Roads?

February 02, 2012 J

The following charts clearly shows that under the O’Malley administration transit spending is a priority over highway spending.

Highway spending is at the lowest percentage since 1992 while transit is the highest.

Is the gas tax really about not having enough money to fix the roads or is because Annapolis politicians are crying wolf to take any attention away from their fiscal mismanagement?


Remember hundreds of millions of dollars were stolen out of the Transportation Trust Fund and the money for projects should have been available throughout the years!
