Letter to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell on MAP-21, the Surface Transportation Authorization Bill

“The Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC) believes that the passage of the surface transportation authorization bill, Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21), by the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works (EPW) represents an essential first step toward establishing a performance-based transportation program.  

“We encourage timely action by the full Senate to complete action on a surface transportation authorization bill, based on MAP-21.  However, MAP-21 can be made more effective by enhancing the capacity of states and metropolitan regions to raise the capital for surface transportation investments through the use of tolling and other user charges.”
