"For the first time in recent history, a member of the California governor's Cabinet has called for a link between state transportation dollars and housing construction... We have not been getting enough return on our investment,' McPeak said. 'We have improved capacity in some areas but we have increased congestion because we have an inefficient land-use pattern that has hurt our economic competitiveness.' Highway or transit improvements in job-rich communities that reject new homes and force workers to drive long distances 'are absolutely unacceptable,' McPeak said."
