Recently the Springfield News-Leader published an online article regarding the investment in transportation and the economic growth that resulted. Transportation seems to be a catalyst for job creation as well. According to a recent study in the state of Missouri, for every $1 invested in transportation, $4 resulted in new economic activity. Improvements in transportation not only help assist in the expansion of existing businesses but also encourage prospective businesses to push forwards. In the state of Missouri, funding occurred without tax increases, making the push for effective transportation highly appealing to the community.
