Earlier this week, Governor John Hickenlooper presented his State of the State, and one of the key features of his speech was transportation. Hickenlooper stated finding new money for transportation projects should be a top priority for 2017, though no specific plan was set forward. Representatives in the Senate expect the investments to be tax-neutral, either through offsetting the state's gas tax or property tax or through existing taxes. Governor Hickenlooper also discussed expanded broadband services in rural areas and health care.
