Tim Kaine's Plan for 'Moving Virginia Forward'

Democrat Tim Kaine has laid out his vision for the state's transportation system, telling a group of business execs in Northern Virginia today that if elected governor he'll push for a constitutional amendment lock up the state's transportation trust fund. Kaine also called for a better link between local land-use decisions and transportation plans, says WashingtonPost.com.

The Post quotes Kaine: "We will never solve Virginia's complex transportation problems with old approaches.. Simply trying to tax and pave our way out of traffic won't work."

Kaine's plan doesn't include new taxes or fee increases, the Post says.

Is a constitutional amendment to tied up the Trust fund really a good idea? During tough times, isn't it better to put off a few road projects than to...say...raise taxes?
