Voters have overwhelmingly turned away Proposition B, the gas and sales tax increases designed to raise an additional $480-Million for transportation. Rodney Gray is with Time for Missouri, a group that backed the measure. He says tough economic situation was probably the biggest opponent to the measure getting passed. But Senator Larry Rohrbach, who led the fight against Prop B, believes theeconomy had less of an impact than how the funding would be raised. Rohrbach does not see this is as a “victory.” He says the roads still need fixing and the Legislature must come up with a funding package more palatable to voters. Gray doubts lawmakers will want to touch the issue again any time soon.
