The House leadership is making unprecedented attack on transit.

In a shocking assault on transit that rolls back 30+ years of bipartisan federal transportation policy and reverses a decision made by President Reagan in the 1980’s, House leadership has proposed killing dedicated funding for the Mass Transit Account.
