A report from the Research Institute on state campaigns to raise funds for transportation programs, including a review of several notable statewide ballot and legislative efforts, both successful and unsuccessful. The report provides lessons learned that can be applied to future state campaign efforts: cultivate strong political champions, plan early and stay committed, gather trustworthy data to support the case, maintain a strong coalition of stakeholders, and be flexible on the revenue options. These lessons may also prove useful to federal legislators in the future, if and when a serious effort is undertaken to return to deficit-neutral transportation investment by raising user fees and other alternative revenue streams to align with investment needs.
