Independence Institute Considering Transportation Ballot Measure

John Caldera of the Independence Institute is considering a transportation initiative for the November ballot. “Fix Our Damn Roads” has been approved by the Secretary of State’s title board with signatures due from voters by August 7. The proposal would ask voters to authorize the State to issue $2.5 million in bonds for transportation funding with a list of projects for which the proceeds would be spent, including North I-25, South I-25, and I-70 West. It specifically excludes transit projects. The Institute is looking for allies because it’s estimated the cost to gather signatures is $1.2 million and another $3 million for a campaign.
