The article reports that Virginia's Speaker of the House Bill Howell vowed earlier this week to push lawmakers to approve $938.5 million in funding for transportation infrastructure for the fiscal 2005-2006 biennium plus an additional $ 1.8 billion for the state's six-year transportation program that might lead to some bond issuance in the future. The proposal from Howell is larger than the $824 million in one-time funding in the current biennium for the state's roads and public transit that Virginia Governor Mark R. Warner proposed last month.
