Amtrak, Jobs, Safety, Transit, Outer Space Tourism, & Freight

This week in 'The Hill' various authors tackle seven subjects relating to transportation for a special section.

The Hill is a non-partisan, non-ideological weekly newspaper covering Congress and its members. This special section on transportation includes articles on Amtrak, creating jobs, transportation research & safety, public transportation needs, outer space tourism, and freight issues. "In the coming weeks, Congress will be debating a six-year reauthorization of our national surface transportation programs. The House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee is proposing a $375 billion highway and transit infrastructure investment that will create good, family-wage jobs and help maintain our economic competitiveness. The legislation will create and sustain 1.7 million new construction jobs throughout the nation, including 445,000 jobs this year alone."
