A group which has been critical of the Missouri Transportation Department says the three options for spending extra transportation funding are still missing a vital piece. The Missouri Farm Bureau says it is neither endorsing nor opposing a proposal on the ballot in August to raise the fuel tax by four cents and the sales tax by half a cent. The tax increase is expected to raise $483-Million a year in additional funding. Farm Bureau President Charles Kruse says the key element of any transportation plan is accountability, which he says the plan lacks. Kruse says without accountability the pressure is on the State Transportation Commission to outline exactly how it plans to spend the extra money and follow through to make sure the money is spent in that manner.
