Quotes

"I think the real issue here, and I think the issue we will be addressing together, is the need for an increased funding scenario," Haigh said. "there is nothing we will be able to do under the current transportation policy plan with the current funding scenario. the reality is, as policymakers, the metro area is going to grow, issues will grow, and we need to be able to work together to come up with a plan that makes sense. you are going to be critical in that role -- everyone at this table."
