Few Details on Proposed Merger of KTA and KDOT

I70 Flickr photo by Jimmy Emerson(Flickr Photo by Jimmy Emerson)Governor Sam Brownback has proposed merging the Kansas Turnpike Authority and the state’s highway department, but so far few details have been released. The head of the KTA says he hasn’t yet taken a stance on the proposal.

That’s Michael Johnston, president and CEO of the KTA. Governor Brownback has said merging the KTA and KDOT will create around $15 million a year in efficiencies. Johnston says he believes the KTA is running efficiently in its current form.

The KTA is funded not by tax dollars, but with the tolls paid by drivers. The governor's administration has said merging the two agencies would create efficiencies in KDOT, by combining offices and staff with the KTA .
