Rather than provide leadership on investments, Gov. McDonnell settled for a minor scuffle over meager dollars.
For business leaders and others serious about the need for a sustainable investment in transportation, the 2012 General Assembly session was utterly pointless. It’s fitting, then, that the budget season would conclude with a final, utterly pointless scuffle.
Gov. Bob McDonnell won that scuffle last week when he vetoed a provision in the budget that would have restricted his ability to earmark future surplus revenues for road and bridge projects.
