Tranportation Legislation and Housing Targets

The Transportation for America Blueprint lists their recommended National Transportation Objectives and Targets.

The Senate bill does not include the key objectives and targets regarding accessibility and combined housing and transportation costs while we understand that the House bill does.

S. 1036 Federal Surface Transportation Policy and Planning Act of 2009, Introduced May 14th by Senators Rockefeller and Lautenberg.

H.R. 2724 National Transportation Objectives Bill, Introduced on June 4th by Reps. Holt, Carnahan and Inslee. Text of this bill is not yet available.

Our organizations' support for the House version of the bill will be extremely important to reinforce the need for these objectives and targets. Stay tuned.
