Minneapolis Rethinking Begins

The New York Times reports today that the Governor of Minnesota, who twice vetoed gas tax increases, is now open to the idea.

It also highlights the fact that Rep. James Oberstar, the Chair of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee (of which Peter DeFazio’s Surface Transportation Committee is a sub-committee) is from Minnesota, which creates interesting perspective on how the Federal gas tax (which, like Oregon’s gas tax, has not been raised since 1993) is allocated between maintenance and new construction.
