The Farm Bureau is threatening to do what it can to block Governor Holden’s transportation plan – and the increased funding to pay for it – unless the state returns to the promises made in the abandoned 15-year plan. The Farm Bureau claims abandonment of the 15-year plan of 1992 stabbed rural Missourians in the back by changing the emphasis of road funding to focus more on urban areas. The Farm Bureau is demanding Transportation Commission Chairman S. Lee Kling be removed and the 15-year plan reinstituted before it will support any new proposal. This, despite the fact Farm Bureau President Charles Kruse admits the 15-year plan is flawed and inadequate. He says any plan and tax package approved by the Legislature this year will fail at the polls next year.
