It's not just transit that's suffering. The feds are over a year behind schedule in passing national transportation legislation - popularly known as "reauthorization," or a "transportation enhancement act" (TEA). Without this periodic infusion of cash, we're going nowhere. "Federal inaction on a robust, multi-year transportation bill has come at a price of American families increasingly stuck and stranded without affordable, reliable and efficient ways to get to work, school, or medical appointments," the statement reads. "As gas prices soars over the $3 a gallon mark, citizens will once again be forced to struggle to choose between paying for gas and paying their bills." The question isn't whether we can afford to make lifeline transportation investments, but whether we can afford not to make them.
