The Surface Transportation Authorization bill being considered by the U.S. House Ways and Means committee is financially perilous to the RTA system.  The House bill removes mass transit’s dedicated source of revenue and would put federal funding in jeopardy for the RTA system.  Public transportation relies on a dedicated funding source to plan for and invest in infrastructure and rolling stock.  The House is considering legislation that would put the RTA in a constant state of uncertainty.  We look forward to working with our Congressmen and Senators to ensure that any legislation that is sent to the President maintains a dedicated funding source and provides additional funding for state of good repair.
