It’s Vegas. It happens.

You and your buddies make a big bet. You put your share in. Then, they don’t.

State transportation officials have lost their partners in a search for an alternative to the fuel tax.

Interesting poll on the story page. It asks, “Would you support usage of a device to track vehicles and charge based on the distance traveled?”

Choices: (1)
