Jon, I'd say they're related, but should not be coupled. We shouldn't fund the transportation system only with money that we can get out of transportation taxes any more than we should fund the Park system only with money we can get out of parks.

We should make one decision about how to tax and another about what to spend that on (not necessarily in that order). But the idea of dedicated revenue is lazy and divisive.
