So here we are. Revenue increases are off the table (hopefully and thankfully). There isn’t the will to borrow to completely fill the gap. When it comes to ways to reduce the spending, the legislators are faced with a political choice. They can anger their constituents by cutting projects, or they can anger the road builders’ lobby by repealing prevailing wage. So far, it appears that the legislature is leaning toward angering their constituents. This tells us who is closest to their hearts.
