The four organizations issued joint policy principles which discuss the role of state and local government in the planning and financing of the nations transportation systems.
19 April 2011
State and local governments bear much of the financial responsibility for the nation’s surface transportation systems, and policy officials believe that a new national transportation agenda requires a strong partnership among all levels of government.
To help facilitate this partnership several state and local organizations developed guiding principles on surface transportation. Released by the National Governors Association (NGA), the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL), the National Association of Counties (NACo), and the National League of Cities (NLC), these guiding principles cover seven critical transportation policy principles to help guide the development of the a national transportation plan in Congress.
The four organizations jointly issued a press release, which can be read online. Read the full Guiding Principles on Surface Transportation on the ICMA Knowledge Network.
