The organization’s goal is simple, protect funds set aside to build and maintain the state’s infrastructure while legislators debate how to solve of state budget crisis.
The sixth in a series of cartoons you’ve likely seen in your Sunday paper features construction workers sitting on a beam holding a sign “will work for 5¢.” The image alludes to the message other media outlets have been reporting in the last few days.
