Road to recovery transforming America's transportation by Bill Bradley ( Book )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
America's transportation program is facing demolition by neglect. Calls to "do more with less" when the nation's infrastructure is crumbling ignore the needs of a system in rapid physical decline. Failure to reform the transportation system risks deepening U.S. dependence on oil and eroding global economic competitiveness. America's transportation system is failing: infrastructure is crumbling and up to $175 billion is added annually to the national deficit. The United States is one of only a handful of countries in the world where revenues raised to support the federal transportation system do not cover costs. A nation's transportation system is a major actor in its economy, deserving investment and requiring federal funding and oversight. Changes to the system will help ensure future economic growth, recognize demographic and geographic shifts in both population and preferences, advance environmental and energy security, and embrace and support innovation. All of these items are necessary to maintain global competitiveness and guarantee future prosperity. Without reform, this failure poses a significant threat to America's economic, energy, and environmental security
