NYT: Hope for a Good Transportation Bill

16 Mar 2012  |   Lea Brumfield

After yesterday’s passage of the Senate transportation bill, the pressure is on the House.  Efforts by the House to pass a transportation bill have been stalled for weeks.  A statement by LCV President Gene Karpinski on the Senate bill said “We encourage the House to abandon its deeply flawed proposal and swiftly pass this bill that puts Americans back to work fixing our nation’s crumbling infrastructure."

An editorial in the New York Times today expressed hope for “a decent national transportation bill that would make needed investments in roads, bridges and mass transit without undermining environmental protections or providing handouts to big polluters.”
