Task Force on transportation
(2008-04-28)
(WOUB) - A task force on transportation priorities is about to begin work in Columbus.

It's charged with looking at ways of developing a multi-modal transport system, getting more public money for needed projects, and using the state's transportation infrastructure to boost economic growth.

But Republican State Senator Joy Padgett of Coshocton says there's a problem with the task force's makeup - too many members from big cities.

Padgett says she and Athens Area Chamber of Commerce head Jennifer Simon are among those trying to get more rural representation on that 21st century Transportation Priorities Task Force, which meets in two weeks.
