Rep. Nygren: Clarifies transportation funding comments

Contact: Rep. John Nygren (888) 534-0089

“This afternoon, I was asked for my thoughts on transportation funding in the next state budget. Assembly Republicans have not caucused on this issue or taken a position. In my response to the question, I offered an assessment of where Republicans in the Assembly have been in the past. In no way did I offer or suggest that the middle-class income tax cut should be used as an offset for transportation revenues.

“Our main focus right now is to use the GOP surplus to give the middle class a tax cut. Our billis currently circulating for co-sponsors. It is a bipartisan priority that should be easy to
accomplish.”
