Investing in infrastructure, especially roads and bridges, is a top priority for administrations in Boston and Washington, but paying for it is proving to be difficult. The state recently raised the gas tax 3 cents per gallon, and is tying future increases to inflation, although there is a move to repeal the indexing. Meanwhile, in Washington, a lack of action in Congress is holding up federal funding for transportation projects in Massachusetts, the Boston Globe reported Sunday. One alternative is a new per-vehicle use tax to help fund transportation projects. Infrastructure investments are widely seen as important for business, and the American Society for Civil Engineers recently gave the nation's roads a grade of D and bridges a C+, indicating that they're both in pretty poor shape. In this week's Flash Poll, we throw the question of funding to you:
Which action will work best to help fund road and bridge improvements in Massachusetts?
