MEDIA ADVISORY

What:  Governor Bob Taft and Ohio Department of Transportation Director Gordon Proctor will announce Ohio's Jobs and Progress Plan to rebuild Ohio's aging highway network, ease congestion in urban areas, improve safety, connect rural regions and stimulate the state's economy by supporting thousands of new jobs.

Key to this plan is this year's Congressional action regarding the reauthorization of the transportation act and the enactment of a new federal energy bill. These pieces of legislation will have a direct bearing on Ohio's federal transportation revenue and how much additional transportation funding the state will receive.
