Business, McCrory team talk NC transport spending

Posted: Updated:
DURHAM, N.C. -

North Carolina's top business lobby is spending a day discussing how investing in transportation projects helps economic growth.

The North Carolina Chamber is pulling together business executives and members of Gov. Pat McCrory's administration to make the case that spending on roads, bridges, railroads and ports makes the economy buzz.

The chamber's infrastructure summit aims to make the point that economic growth, safety and quality of life are connected and depend on public spending.

McCrory last week proposed a new statewide transportation funding model that will direct more money to projects with a greater economic impact rather than sharing tax money equally across the state's regions.
