The following Press Release was sent out by the office of Governor Brad Little on March 26th, 2021:
Boise, Idaho – Governor Brad Little announced today he will host Sustainable Transportation Funding Roundtables with businesses and local leaders across Idaho next week.
Governor Little will travel to north Idaho, eastern Idaho, and the west Treasure Valley next week to meet with businesses and local officials about their need for a sustainable transportation funding solution to deal with Idaho’s unprecedented growth.
“Before and during the pandemic, Idaho is the fastest growing state in the nation. Idaho simply will not keep up with that growth if we, as elected leaders, do not invest strategically and sustainably in our roads,” Governor Little said. “We have an obligation as elected leaders to confront the growing list of unfunded transportation projects across Idaho with a sustainable funding plan moving forward. We must take steps now to preserve your precious time and make our transportation system safer. I am actively working with my legislative partners on a plan right now.”
The Governor’s Office will reach out directly to local newsrooms to share details about media availabilities that will take place following the roundtable sessions at each stop.
