Transportation, higher-ed funding must be addressed

I disagree with Scot Lehigh’s analysis in his Feb. 8 op-ed “Patrick’s plan too ambitious for the times.” Governor Patrick has proposed a sweeping tax plan that addresses two critical issues: transportation and education. The plan proposes that new revenue be dedicated to address problems that have left our state in a no-win position.

The governor and Legislature have the opportunity to develop a plan to address the ever-increasing transportation operating budget deficit, not just for the MBTA but for transportation across the state.
