NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – The dust may have settled on legislative elections and leadership votes, but Republican Gov. Bill Haslam

doesn’t appear any closer to divulging his plans for boosting transportation funding in Tennessee. Haslam tells reporters he’s

meeting with lawmakers and other elected officials to address what he has described as a $6 billion backlog in road projects.

Meanwhile, a wide-ranging transit plan for the greater Nashville area alone is projected to cost about $6 billion over the next 25

years.
