Transportation issues in Virginia
Nearly half the state recognizes the importance of transportation spending. But there are varying levels of priority throughout the state, with the areas closest to Washington most concerned and placing a higher priority on extending the Metro to Dulles International Airport. The prospect of an additional 5-cent gas tax to pay for transportation needs gets mixed reviews, with outright rejection of a 10-cent increase.
