Highway Funding To Be Major Future Issue

April 29, 2008, 1:24 PM

Highway Funding To Be Major Future Issue
Legislative leaders say South Dakota can no longer depend on adequate federal funding for roads and must do what it can to ensure that road needs are met without placing too large a burden on taxpayers.

Just how to accomplish that, however, is a monumental task.

The issue of road funding is so critical that state lawmakers have decided it should be the only topic studied by a legislative panel this summer.

Typically, several interim committees are appointed after the winter lawmaking session to study various issues.

Federal money typically has paid for 75 percent of highway construction in South Dakota, but those funds are uncertain in tight budget times.

State lawmakers say a long-term plan must be developed to finance the 84,000-mile network of state and local roads in South Dakota.
