Brummett and I on Highways

It is news when John Brummett and I agree on something. His recent column advocated something I have called for since 1998- the abolition of the State Highway commission. It has not served the state well. He also called for more turnback money to cities and counties. I favor that as well. In short, his highway plan sounds a lot like my highway plan would. Yes, I am scared.

I would add that some little-used roads should be assigned to cities and counties along with the revenue. It is ridiculous to call some of these roads "state" highways when 90+ percent of the users are local folks from the same county.
