AGO Opinions with Topic: IMPROPER EXPENDITURE OF HIGHWAY FUNDS
AGO 1957 No. 104 >  July 29, 1957
HIGHWAYS - IMPROPER EXPENDITURE OF HIGHWAY FUNDS
HIGHWAYS ‑- IMPROPER EXPENDITURE OF HIGHWAY FUNDS Under the 1956 federal aid highway act federal funds cannot be made available for the purchase of additional rights of way to accommodate a rapid rail transit system within the highway right of way.  The use of motor vehicle funds as the state's participating money in the purchase of additional rights of way to accommodate a rapid rail transit system within the highway right of way would constitute a diversion of motor vehicle funds under the 18th Amendment to the Washington constitution.
