The Thomas Jefferson Institute applauds the Virginian Governor for making transportation the key issue of this year’s General Assembly session. It is long past time for Virginia to face up to its transportation needs and to figure out how to resolve them. This paper analyzes the Governor’s plan as it stands today in the General Assembly and offers a “friendly amendment” focused solely on the maintenance issue. The economic analysis was completed using our STAMP (State Tax Analysis Modeling Program) model developed by the respected economic team at the Beacon Hill Institute located at Suffolk University in Boston.
