REGINA, Sask. — Saskatchewan Finance Minister, Eric Cline, has announced that the government will step up the funding of the province’s oft-criticized highways.

“We are putting an additional $24.9 million into roads and highways,” says Cline. “Saskatchewan people will see lasting benefits from this spending.”

A total of $213 in special warrant funding has been authorized, and highways are just one of the areas in which the money will be spent, the minister explains.

“Total special warrant funding is in line with last year and 43.8 per cent less than in 1998-99,” adds Cline. “Ongoing operating expenditures are basically on target with the budget. The budget will remain balanced. There is no question about that.”
