The U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) is allowing individuals and groups to go online and submit comments, ideas and analyses regarding reauthorization of the nation's surface transportation programs.
"As we develop new proposals for our surface transportation program, we want to hear from our state and local partners, the private sector and all those who are interested in meeting the transportation challenges of tomorrow," said U.S. Transportation Secretary Norman Mineta.
The current legislation, the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA 21), was enacted in June 1998. It is set to expire on Sept. 30, 2003, and Congress and the Bush Administration are working to develop its successor.
