Just prior to the Fourth of July weekend, the state legislature passed six month budget extension to keep the state operating.


Don Schaeffer of the Midwest Truckers Association says the good news is that road and bridge construction and repair projects were funded for the full year, through nest June.



In addition, Schaeffer says the legislature has approved a constitutional amendment for the ballot this November that would halt the practice of sweeping transportation funds for general fund use.



And the loss of that six billion over the past decade is major reason why Illinois roads and bridges have fallen into disrepair.
