The gloves are coming off when it comes to transportation dollars. Last week Governor Easley called DOT's $64 billion shortfall over the next 25 years figures "absurd". This week even Democrats are defending the DOT and wondering why Easley ripped the department when the Secretary is his appointment. Even worse, the signals are coming in that DOT will come back to the GA in the next month or two and say it's even higher!!!!
Make sure to check out Political Connections this Friday at 6pm and Sunday morning at 11. I interviewed Easley's Senior Advisor Dan Gerlach as well as Republican Senator Robert Pittenger. We take a look at the Gov's budget. Pretty good stuff.
