Gov. Otter Won’t Support Road Funding Without Public Backing

Benito Baeza

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter says he won’t get behind a plan to raise revenue for roads and bridges without a show of support from the public. Otter spelled out his conditions at a meeting of the Idaho Associated General Contractors in Garden City Friday.

The Idaho Statesman reported the Republican governor is determined not to repeat his experience of two years ago with the public education initiative “Students Come First.” That ambitious education overhaul was narrowly approved in the Legislature but overturned by voters the following year.

Otter also said a push to raise highway funds in 2014 coincides with his bid to seek a third term. But Otter did ask the group to help pay for a $45,000 poll to gage public support for additional highway revenue.
