Nixon Passes on Transportation Plan

NO COMMITMENTS FROM ATTORNEY GENERAL ON PENDING ROAD CRISIS

***WATCH CLIPS BELOW***

At Missouri Press Association Forum last week, all top candidates for Governor steer clear of specifics on MoDot shortfall besides "no gas tax" pledges

Democrat Jay Nixon urges consensus on coming funding shortage for highways, says he'll wait to hear MoDot priorities before showing his hand. Pledges, "There aren't any taxes on the table for me."

Signals that public-private partnerships to manage Missouri roads give him "deep concerns," because of the potential for foreign ownership . . . Still, Jay Nixon leaves "everything on the table."
