Luke warm support for Gov's Transportation Initiative

Small business support is luke warm for the Gov's Transportation initiative, according to the epically named Silver State Bank/ASBA/O'Neil Associates Arizona Economic Indicators monitor. If you recall, these are the same people who said that Terry Goddard topped the polls for future candidates for Governor.

If the transportation people are able to make it on the ballot, they are going to have to put together a fairly intensive campaign selling the program's benefits. Like the survey mentions, the opponents are going to have some fairly simple arguments to put forth. The local economic climate is not doing the proponents any favors either. Hopefully, they have finally put the secret deal with the Homebuilders behind them and actually start educating the voters.
