    If I was a legislator looking for support, this influential group would trump any direction that might differ from the DOT, districts or county professionals. My issue with chamber of commerce committees like this is they don’t expect growth to substantially fund growth but prefer to spread the costs to all taxpayers for the (their) greater good.

    Plan B is that Deal selects transportation projects. The Alliance can direct their campaign and PAC contributions accordingly.
