Does Transportation Funding Violate the Civil Rights Act?

The Great City blog argues that Washington State's 18th Amendment "violates the United States Civil Rights Act of 1964, perpetuating discrimination in the state's transportation system."

The bloggers write:

"While environmentalists have decried the constraints of the 18th Amendment for many years, we've heard relatively little from the social justice community. How does the state's transportation expenditures create the types of inequities that the Civil Rights Act was designed to avert? Looking back to the history of the Civil Rights Act provides us with some answers."
