The Debate Over Metropolitan Planning Organizations

In the midst of an important debate in Washington, DC over the future of America's transportation funding, a report issued this month by the Government Accountability Office (GAO) identified several challenges facing regional transportation policy.

"The report's recommendations, including the possible implementation of performance measures and the allocation of more funding for advanced modeling, could be debated as soon as this fall. If this debate doesn't trigger significant changes for the operation of MPOs, competition for relatively stagnant funding sources will continue to escalate."
