Constantly raising fees and taxes at the state level to compensate for promised-yet-undelivered federal dollars is no way to efficiently run a government. The current transportation shortfall has been resolved for now, but this problem will continue to be a thorn in states' sides until they either remove the federal government's footprint from their transportation budgets, or significant reform occurs at the federal level.
