More on the Transportation Plans
Chad had this post up yesterday over at Commonwealth Conservative about the House Transportation package.
Highlights, including some of the ideas that have been discussed on this blog, include:
- Support better transportation asset management and protection of higher costs for highway maintenance.
- Strengthening Transportation Partnership Opportunity Fund to help jump-start PPTA projects.
Delegate Callahan states:
"...we have developed a plan that provides immediate and long-term answers to the challenges facing our transportation system."
This should be our focus in developing a transportation plan: not only implementing plans for immediate relief, but giving serious thought to the long-term needs and making sure we are addressing those needs in a responsible and cost-effective manner.
