Statement on Ballot Question 1

In approving Question 1 on November 4, we are disappointed that Massachusetts has lost an important funding source that would have helped to build and maintain a safe and reliable transportation system across the Commonwealth. We are proud of the legislature for taking last year’s courageous vote to provide needed funding after years of delayed investment.

Looking forward, we will continue to work with elected officials and our coalition partners to find a way to fill this significant gap in our state’s transportation infrastructure budget. The benefits of a transportation network that serves everyone will only be realized through wise planning and a strong statewide coalition.

Transportation for Massachusetts is committed to the Commonwealth.
