If your car spends as much time in your local front-end alignment shop as it does on Louisiana's roadways, you're not alone.
The good news is now there's something you can do about it. The better news is, it won't cost you any extra tax dollars.
On October 24th, voters will have the chance to approve two Constitutional amendments aimed at improving Louisiana's roadways. We've not been a fan of many budget-crippling amendments in the past, but these two make sense.
Amendment 1 directs existing mineral revenues to be used for transportation improvements.
Amendment 2 allows the State Treasurer to invest existing funds into the Louisiana State Transportation Bank. That money can then be loaned to local governments to plan and complete road projects, and boy, with our economic boom do we have some critical road projects around here.
Again, all of this can be done with no new taxes.
