A top state senator in Virginia believes President-elect Barack Obama may be the force that finally gets new transportation funding passed in the General Assembly.

A new economic stimulus package is expected to be one of the first things passed by Congress once Mr. Obama moves into the White House. Money for road projects will likely be included in such a plan. Richard Saslaw, the Senate majority leader from Fairfax County, thinks some of that money will come to the state. But he adds the only way in his mind to guarantee that is for state lawmakers to approve new state funds for transportation.
