It's About Time


Transportation is failing and demands to be transformed. Population, income and economic activity have risen, increasing the demand for transportation, but infrastructure has not kept pace. The result is time wasted on clogged and deteriorated roads, pollution of our air and eroding economic opportunities.

Transportation funding is inadequate to the job. Transportation policy is ineffective at meeting the needs of our citizens. Inflation has dramatically decreased the purchasing power of the federal motor fuels tax, and revenues are wasted by inflexible and unfocused funding categories.
