Federal transportation bill would make Oklahoma no longer a 'donor state'

Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ Oklahoma stands to receive an average of $558-million annually if President Bush approves a federal transportation bill already passed by the House and Senate.

The bill includes $560-million for special projects in the state, including the widening of Interstate 44 in Tulsa and the relocation of Interstate 40 in Oklahoma City.

If the president approves the bill as it was passed by Congress, Oklahoma's transportation funding would increase from $424.7-million to $558.6-million per year.

It would be the first time since construction began on the interstate system 50 years ago that the state gets more in federal funding than it provides in fuel tax money.
