Perhaps groups that are advocating for more transportation spending, such as the Mississippi Economic Council, could run a successful campaign to get voters to agree to a package of tax and fee increases.

But the MEC and other like-minded groups, no doubt, would have to think long and hard before endorsing such a referendum
