With the failure of Proposition
B on Tuesday's Missouri ballot, the state's officials are looking
for other ways to generate revenue for the roads. Highway commissioners
announced Thursday they are looking into toll roads as a means.
To do that, Missouri voters
would have to OK an amendment to the state constitution that they've
already said no to twice.
The measure that failed
Tuesday would have raised the gasoline and fuel tax by 4 cents
and sales tax by a half cent. Officials estimated it would have
generated $483 million for roads and bridges.
