DiNapoli: Dedicated Highway/Bridge Funds Diverted For Other Expenses

Comptroller Tom DiNapoli says billions in highway and bridge repair money is being spent elsewhere by the state. 

DiNapoli says the Dedicated Highway and Bridge Trust Fund has been used for operational expenses and service on debt.  DiNapoli says only about a quarter of the money in that fund is actually used for capital improvements.  He says the fund ought to be returned to is intended purpose as soon as possible.
