MoDOT Money Falls Short
MoDOT said it needs to come up with new ways to raise money, but if that can't happen, certain projects will take precedence over others.
As a result, some projects may never happen.
"When you're looking at a gap of 18 billion dollars, it's always important to work with Missourians to direct funds to the highest priorities of the state," Eric Curtit, from the Missouri Advance Planning project, said. " MoDOT has a process called the Planning Framework to identify those top priorities and then direct resources to meet them."
Lawmakers may pass a gas tax to help close the budget gap.
