If you ask most people in Colorado they will say transportation is okay in Colorado but could be better. For most people on the Front Range, the worst part is dealing with the traffic and congested roadways, on the Western Slope, its potholes. And across the whole state, its construction projects going on constantly. Well now according to KREX, Colorado lawmakers are now introducing a new and improved Transportation Bill.

Colorado Governor Jared Polis says on average Coloradans spend nearly $600 per year stuck in traffic. This 5.3 billion dollar bill would aim to save Coloradans money on reducing registration fees. The bill also sets up the state of Colorado to invest more into electric vehicles to improve air quality. But as we all know these things will take money, and where is this cash going to come from?

Colorado Lawmakers Introduced a New Transportation Bill, But It Will Cost Coloradans

The idea of saving money on not sitting in traffic sounds great in theory, but how will all of the research and implementation of all the ideas be paid for? It's going to be a 2 cent gas tax that would begin in 2022. That fee would increase 1 cent per year up to 8 cents per gallon. The bill would also cost each Coloradan $28 the first year.
