Before we raise the gas tax, stop raiding transportation fund

May 24, 2011

I am realistic enough to recognize that costs do go up and that you can't build and maintain our highways without sufficient revenues.

However, it is common knowledge that the "3Ms" — Martin O'Malley, Mike Busch and Mike Miller — have looted the Transportation Trust Fund to balance the state's budget.

Before we raise the gas tax, they should restore the funds that have been used to balance the budget.
