The Federal Surface Transportation Program: The Next Four Years
Transportation policy often passes under the radar of politicalanalysts and media commentators, overshadowed as it is by such majorconcerns as the fight against terrorism, the economy, the future ofsocial security, and health care. This posture of benign neglectshould not continue. Mobility is too important to the economicvitality of the nation to remain invisible in the policy dialogue.Raising the profile of transportation is especially timely at thisjuncture, as the President prepares to shape the policy agenda for hisnext administration and Congress returns to the unfinished task ofreauthorizing the federal surface transportation program.
To this end, four transportation policy experts -- Kenneth Orski, Stephen Lockwood, Alan Pisarski and Robert Poole -- offer Planetizen readers a forward look at the federal surface transportation program and weigh the transportation choices facing the Administration and the Congress over the next four years.
