State legislators attending a transportation forum in Yuma Friday said area residents need to be part of the solution for coming up with the funding to fix and build roads and other transportation infrastructure, by making a solid case for spending state dollars, if not coming up with the money on their own.

"If you're looking to the Legislature to solve your problems, you're looking in the wrong place. You can solve your own problems by bringing pressure up," said Rep. Noel Campbell, R-Prescott, a member of the House's transportation committee. "And by that I mean we're not going anywhere until we can get the governor on board. He's got to strongly come out with leadership, give us directions. If he does that, and from the bottom-up or the swelling of support," the change can come.
