The Iowa Republican: Culver's bonding bill in jeopardy - Return of the gas tax?

Excerpted from this post at The Iowa Republican

Governor Chet Culver's $750 million bonding proposal is has met
serious objections with Democrats in the House and Senate. Legislative
Democrats want to change everything in Culver's proposal from what the
money would be used for to the types of bonds that will be used to
fund the program. The news of the dissension from fellow Democrats
comes as Culver is on a statewide tour trying to build support for his
proposal. Democrat lawmakers are offering a different $700 billion
dollar bonding plan that would not provide one dime for bridge and
road repairs.
