The MetroWest Daily News reports that the Bay State’s transportation infrastructure is a major priority for Governor Deval Patrick, and significant modifications could bring more employment opportunities to citizens throughout the region.??

Patrick has suggested a $1 billion per year plan to improve the Massachusetts transportation sector. U.S. State Representative Jim McGovern and other state leaders have already shown support for Patrick’s initiative.??

“We need to invest in our infrastructure to create jobs,” McGovern told the newspaper. “Job growth is the way to get fiscal growth in order.”

Missouri administrators are also reviewing strategies to fill vacancies in the state’s??transportation industry. According to the St. Louis Business Journal, several Missouri officials are supporting a tax increase that could bring $7.9 billion to the state’s transportation segment over the next 10 years. If the tax is approved, the Missouri Department of Transportation could receive extra resources that may significantly benefit the agency by allowing it to improve its services and hire new qualified professionals.??
