The Hill (11/12, Laing) reports in its “Transportation” blog that the American Road and Transportation Builders Association is pointing toward successful referendum on road and transit projects across the country as evidence of support for increased transportation spending by voters. “Voters across the nation again confirmed the high value they place on transportation infrastructure improvements by approving 91 percent of November 5 ballot measures to increase or extend funding for highways, bridges and transit and electing two transportation advocates for governor,” the association said in a statement. The Hill notes that the American Public Transportation Association offered a similar assessment.
