Denver – Today, Colorado House Republicans announced their proposal to direct a $100 million dollars of the General Fund toward roads and bridges throughout the state. This money would be in addition to the money used to repair roads and bridges impacted by the September floods.
“It is in these good times that businesses reinvest in their business to build for the future. Our State should be no different,” said House Minority Leader Brian DelGrosso (R-Loveland). “Times are improving and now is the time to reinvest in Colorado. Having a strong infrastructure is key to improving the needs of Colorado’s economy and builds on the needs for our future success.”
“One of the functions of government is ensuring that roads and bridges are safe and accessible,” said Rep. Ray Scott (R-Grand Junction), the ranking member of the House Transportation & Energy Committee. “By investing in our state’s infrastructure we are protecting the movement of commerce throughout Colorado, while giving CDOT the ability to accelerate some key projects in our state.”
