Underscoring the need for a dedicated and sustainable source of transportation funding, Governor John Hickenlooper has endorsed the proposed transportation sales tax initiative — and said he will advocate for it throughout the fall campaign season.
“One of the thorniest challenges Colorado faces is to dedicate the funds everyone agrees are needed to modernize and expand our transportation system,” the governor said. “Democrats and Republicans agree that we must break the status quo. This is the right solution that provides the reliable flow of funds that will jumpstart us toward real progress. I’m ready to go to work to convince voters that we must pass this initiative this year.”
