Transportation funding, what Coloradans really need
By Shoshana Lew

As this year’s legislative session came to a close, I was proud of the progress Gov. Jared Polis’ administration has made to improve Coloradans’ lives and our economy, like universal, free full-day kindergarten; landmark measures to reduce health care costs; embracing our renewable energy future; and investing in Colorado’s transportation system.
I know that citizens are concerned about longer commutes, crumbling infrastructure, and road safety, which is why Polis signed a budget that adds $100 million for transportation for a total of over $750 million in additional state transportation funding.
