LaHood on the Stimulus Package

Speaking today at the Center for National Policy in D.C., Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood touted the success of the ARRA stimulus package and answered questions on transportation bill reauthorization and other topics.

TheCityFix reports on the event, and graciously includes a complete set of notes. According to their report, the questions revealed much more than the Secretary's presentation.

"We learned in response to a question from Fairplay magazine, a maritime-related journal, that a large portion of the $1.5b in discretionary ARRA spending will go to ports, partly because port infrastructure had no other way of being funded in the stimulus bill. The other priority that LaHood mentioned for the discretionary spending was intermodal plans. I'd refer you back to Roy Kienitz's (the Under Secretaroy of Transportation for Policy) remarks at the TPB priority bus conference for a greater sense of how those intermodal dollars will be spent, particularly in the D.C. region."
