Transportation Funding Task Force
In Michigan, a new initiative is underway to address the issue of future funding for transportation. Public Act 221 of 2007 created a Transportation Funding Task Force (TF2) to “review the adequacy of surface transportation and aeronautics service provision and finance” in Michigan. The task force is made up of 9 citizens representing 8 economic sectors plus the majority and minority leaders of the Senate and the speaker and minority leader of the Michigan House of Representatives.
The task force is supported a Citizens Advisory Committee and MDOT is responsible for providing staff to the effort.
A web site has been created to keep everyone informed of the progress of the Task Force, which will be working thru most of 2008 and reporting its initial recommendations to the state legislature by October 31,2008. We invite you to visit the web site….
