Covering Sustainable Transportation Policy-Making on Capitol Hill
Our friends at Livable Streets have just created a new sub-site: Streetsblog Capital Hill. Congrats guys & gals! I know you'll do a good job of "mapping the political landscape that keeps transit under-funded and new road projects flush with federal cash" and serve as a place for "community residents and livable streets advocates to connect with the often daunting bureaucracy in the nation's capital."So Why Should I Check it Out?
The site isn't launching empty either. It's already full of goodies!
Here are some recent posts that I found interesting:
- House to Vote This Week on Weak ‘Cash for Clunkers’ Plan
- LaHood, Biden Meet With Governors on High-Speed Rail
- Getting Real About High-Speed Rail
- Bush Transpo Secretary’s Biggest Disappointment: Bush
Elana Schor will be the main contributor to the Capitol Hill Streetsblog (as far as I can tell). If you have tips, suggestions, questions, etc.. You can reach her at lana (at) streetsblog (dot) org.
