St. Louis Representative, Timothy Green proposed an amendment to the transportation bonding bill. His amendment would have removed the language in the bill designating whether money would go to urban or rural areas.

Contents: Green says he is from St. Louis and that his people need highway money too.

But, the amendment was voted down, its supporters were all urban representatives.

Green does support the bill even though his amendment didn't pass.

House representatives voted almost exactly on regional lines against a proposed amendment to the transportation bill Tuesday.

The amendment was proposed by Timothy Green from St. Louis. He says it would have removed the urban/rural friction from the funding to highway funding.

The transportation bill is sponsored by Don Koller. He voted against the amendment, but says he isn't in favor of designating where the money goes.

Contents: He says the money could go to urban or rural areas, as long as the highways get fixed.

Koller is from Shannon County, but says he wasn't voting along regional lines.
