NOW we can celebrate! Last Friday, President Obama signed a $305 billion, five-year transportation bill
into law. The 1,300 page Fixing
America’s Surface Transportation Act
(FAST) provides
reauthorization of the federal surface transportation program (along with
passenger rail and several other items). The new law includes additional local
funding through the Surface Transportation Program and an increase in
Transportation Alternatives Program and Metropolitan Planning funding. 
      You can read all 1,300 pages if you’d like, or here’s another option: the
National Association of Regional Councils (NARC if you like acronyms) has prepared an analysis of the new
law, which you can access here and which will save you a lot of time. You’re welcome.
