TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - It's one thing to hear about potholes and state budgets.
It's another to see how the two are connected. That's part of the thinking behind a new video presentation on YouTube this week from the Kansas Department of Transportation.
Using still photographs, charts and video, the transportation department produced a video that explains the impact of reducing state spending for road maintenance.
Secretary Deb Miller says Wednesday the video is meant to show Kansans and people interested in highway spending the impact of highway spending being reduced by $257 million during the past year.
The four-minute video is KDOT's latest use of social media. The department has already made extensive use of Web pages, Twitter and Facebook.
