Abstract

The spirit behind the creation of the task force is one of good government. It rests upon the basic premise that taxpayers demand the best service possible for their tax dollars. Combine this demand for efficiency with Iowa's aging roadway system, and a projected increase in the state's vehicle miles traveled, the need to examine cost savings becomes apparent. Beyond the rational for good and efficient government, however, is a major concern for potential future reductions in Federal highway funds. Iowa is likely entering a period of needing an expanded transportation system with at best a static capacity for maintenance and construction.
