"We don't have a billion dollars sitting around spare in a bank account anywhere," he said. "Somebody's got to pay for it. If the people vote that they're willing to pay for it, then that's fine - they have decided that they're willing to pay a little extra to take care of the roads that are so critical to taking care of their communities, their cities, their homes, their jobs and their businesses."

WHAT A JOKE!!!!!!!

And these progressive liberal clowns have the nerve to expect the people to pay for the pulverized roads the GAS industry has created!!!!!

This is playing out EXACTLY as I predicted!!!!!

This MUST not stand!!!!!!

Triton hit the nail on the head. He just stood up and lied! And the Secretary of WV DOT just stated that they have no interest at utilizing Public Private Partnerships to raise revenues, even though these PPPs raise revenues all across the world. Seems like the WVDOT Secretary doesn't see any need to raise revenue? What a severe disconnect between the needs of the WV and the State Officials understanding.

Anyone remember the Used Car Salespeople we call legislators telling us that the engery industry is putting millions into a road repair fund for when the major drilling is over the incredible destruction of secondary roads will be repaired? Anyone remember Governor Tanning Bed telling us that? So now we the state may have to put it on the ballot to raise funds to the fix the roads. Lemme think..the gas drillers are not leaving, they are here like bottle flies on roadkill for our minerals and yet our politicos want us to now pay for the road repair. The state waved a magic wand and excused the drillers from any weight restrictions so they could crush the roads into dust but now we are going to have to pony it up to fix them ourselves. Most saw that coming. And yet Gov Tanman told us just this week we are all rich and things are swell in Dogpatch.
