The State Treasurer, who is running for governor, comes out with his solution for Missouri’s transportation problems.State Treasurer Bob Holden is critical of St. Louis Congressman Jim Talent’s $10-Billion plan to save the 1992, 15-year highway plan. Talent is a Republican gubernatorial candidate. Holden charges the plan would damage the state’s Triple-A bond rating and bankrupt transportation spending for the next 20 years.Holden favors the $2-Billion transportation bond issue working its way through the state legislature. He says MODOT could restore its credibility with that influx of funding and set up his plan to devise a total transportation plan in 2001 based on public input.Holden says preservation of the current system and public safety should be addressed first, then broaden the plan to include all modes of transportation.
