Missouri’s lieutenant governor pledges to focus on transportation, if he’s elected in 2020. Republican Mike Kehoe has announced he’s seeking a four-year term in 2020. He tells the audience at his campaign announcement that there are obstacles in Missouri transportation.
Missouri lawmakers approved the governor’s $350 million bridge bonding plan this year, which is aimed at repairing or replacing 250 deteriorating bridges. However, Missouri’s gasoline tax has remained the same since 1996. Voters rejected a proposed ten-cent gasoline tax increase in November. No Democrats have announced that they’re running for lieutenant governor, at this time.
