Important information from our partners at Transportation for America about the House leadership’s move to defund public transportation.
A key House Committee is threatening to kill three decades of successful investments in mass transit – originally started under President Ronald Reagan – by ending the guarantee for dedicated funding for public transportation.
The House leadership is making unprecedented attack on transit.
In a shocking assault on transit that rolls back 30+ years of bipartisan federal transportation policy and reverses a decision made by President Reagan in the 1980’s, House leadership has proposed killing dedicated funding for the Mass Transit Account. No more guarantee of funding each year and no long-term stability for public transportation. States, cities, communities and their transit systems could lose billions.
