It is a rare opportunity when you can actually see into the future, and the Idaho Legislature has the unique opportunity to do just that. I suggest we send a contingent to Wisconsin to meet with Gov. Scott Walker and have him take them on a driving tour of their great state. I was there this past fall on business and traveled the main highways and secondary roads for several days. Two things stood out to me: The state is drop-dead beautiful and their infrastructure (roads and bridges) are in a shambles. I was absolutely amazed that Gov. Walker would place his campaign signs on the side of these roads. The cost of letting our roadways and bridges fall into disrepair is more than we can afford. We must find a way to keep Idaho beautiful and travelable.
