Late last week the House released the outline of their transportation bill, which would cut total transportation funding by one-third, kill the tiny slice of dedicated funding for safer walking and biking, slash transit funding and leave the repair of our crumbling roads and bridges to chance.
That is hardly a vision for the 21st century.
The Senate has a chance to do better this week with their version of the bill, but they need to hear from their constituents. We need strong, new priorities for this century: Preserve our existing highways and bridges. Expand the options that save money, time and energy. Hold states and regions accountable for smart planning and wise investment.
