New Conference at Miller Center on transportation recommendations for the US (from Miller Center, UT Virginia)
Former Transportation Secretaries Mineta & Skinner will release a bipartisan report outlining ten recommendations for the U.S. transportation system at a news conference October 4th, 2010, in Washington, D.C.
The news conference will start at 10:00 am and take place in room 2167 of the Rayburn House Office Building. It will be webcast live at www.millercenter.org.
The report concludes that the country’s transportation infrastructure is no longer adequate and that it is costing the U.S. economy dearly. It offers 10 practical and sustainable recommendations, including:
• looking beyond the gas tax to finance highways and other infrastructure
• effectively reducing traffic jams that are wasting too much fuel and too many Americans’ time
• giving priority to transportation projects that will have the greatest long-term economic benefit
