Lawmakers say they've got the answer to Missouri's highway problem. Karyn Dest reports from Jefferson City.
The House Republican plan to take care of Missouri's roads includes replacing the Highway Commission with a Secretary of Transportation. A change would require a constitutional amendment.
House Republican leader Catherine Hanaway says a tax increase is out of the question.
There has been no response yet from the governor's office or Mo-Dot. From Jefferson City, this is Karyn Dest.
