How does the new 2012 federal transportation bill (MAP 21)affect rural communities?

Transportation for America will hold a webinar Wednesday, Feb. 27, at 1pm EST to explore how the new 2012 federal transportation bill affects rural communities.

Investing in a variety of transportation options -- public transportation, vanpooling, bicycling, walking and safe roads and bridges -- are crucial for stronger, more resilient communities in our nation's rural areas. It's important to know how the new federal transportation bill (MAP-21) has changed the way communities can access transportation dollars and what these funds may be used for. This online presentation will explain how to use MAP-21 to fund rural transportation priorities and strengthen communities.
Panelists for this discussion will include:

  • Commissioner Kathy Rinaldi, Teton County, Idaho
  • Charles W. Fluharty, President and CEO, Rural Policy Research Institute
  • Chris Zeilinger, Director of Policy Development, Community Transportation Association of America
  • Georgia Gann, Deputy Director of Government Affairs, Transportation for America
  • John Robert Smith, President and CEO, Reconnecting America and Former Mayor of Meridian, MS (moderator)
