Transportation Reform

Find out all about the ‘road to righteousness’ here. An excerpt:



“Politically, the proposals work as a package: There’s something in it for everybody. Environmentalists ought to like the package because it dampens the out-of-control growth of automobile traffic and establishes the principle that motorists should help pay for mitigating the pollution they create. The anti-tax crowd ought to like it because it does not rely solely upon the failed tax-and-build policies of the past. Local governments ought to like it because it gives them more policy options than they have now. Even the tax-and-spend constituencies ought to like it because it provides a rationale for raising more transportation dollars through the gasoline tax.”
