TIGER Funding Denied

Colorado Highway officials are trying to figure out why they've been passed over for highway-project stimulous funding.  Spokeswoman Stacy Stegman tells the Denver Post Colorado has been passed by for two years without explanation.  This year the federal Department of Transportation received 848 applications from all 50 states. A project in Wyoming and and one in Montana werre funded, but for the most part, Western states — including Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, Nevada and Arizona — were skipped.
