Raleigh, N.C. — Efficiency was the watch word Thursday at the Department of Transportation.
Gov. Pat McCrory, in his first visit to the DOT board, told leaders to improve efficiency at the Division of Motor Vehicles.
He also pushed legislation to change the funding formula for transportation. The governor wants more tax money directed to large, high traffic projects.
McCrory described what he is looking for. "Something I think is well thought out, something that is visionary and something that will get a bigger bang for the buck that what we've been getting in the past."
The governor made two new DOT board appointments Thursday, including former Democratic lawmaker Jim Crawford of Granville County.
