As plans are being made by lawmakers for the 2013 session of the Missouri General Assembly, an issue that should be given a high priority is transportation, particularly our highway and bridge needs. Simply put, more revenue is needed to meet those needs.

The Legislature and Gov. Jay Nixon have turned their backs on any kind of a tax increase for transportation. With term limits for both lawmakers and the governor, there should be less concern about doing anything that may cost them votes. Missouri needs a leader, either from the governor’s mansion, or from the Legislature, to champion the cause of transportation. We need a leader who isn’t afraid to address needs and propose solutions.
