Change Coming In How County Road Use Tax Funding Is Distributed

Des Moines, Iowa — There will be a change in the way road use tax funds are distributed to counties after the governor signed a bill into law cutting the number of state boards and commissions.

The DOT’s Stuart Anderson says the funding for counties had been determined by the Secondary Road Fund Distribution Committee.

Anderson said during the Transportation Commission’s recent meeting that the committee helped deal with annual fluctuations in county road funding. He says the new law cut that committee and shifted the responsibility.

Anderson says the Transportation Commission can still seek input from the supervisor and county engineers.

Anderson says the Transportation Commission will be working on the rulemaking process for distributing the county funds in the next couple of months.
