Scoppe: Senate GOP road plan: Keep the reform, ditch the raid

Plan gives governor more control over DOT than any other proposal, increasing chance it would focus on state priorities instead of parochial horse-trading

It promises to pay for roads by stealing money promised to schools, elections, police, courts, economic development, environmental protection, child protection, etc.

The promise is unenforceable and likely would be ignored, like similar promises to give specific amounts of money to cities, counties and schools
