State budget problems could mean delays in road repairs.
Legislative leaders negotiating a budget repair bill have rejected a proposal from the Governor to raid nearly $260 million from the state transportation fund. Craig Thompson of the Transportation Development Association says that's good news, but the continued delay on reaching a budget compromise.
Thompson says highway projects scheduled to being in May or June could face serious setbacks if a deal is not reached soon. That could result in hundreds of construction workers being laid off and could even close down some highway contractors.
