What other organizations are saying about ISTEA...
- Where state and local governments are making the most of ISTEA, the
law is improving our transportation system as well as people's lives. ISTEA.
- The Community Transportation Association of America (CTAA) generally
supports the transportation priorities and mechanisms established by the
Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991, or "ISTEA."
CTAA embraces a reauthorization of this law that will carry its many strengths
forward into the 21st century.
- The Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act, known as ISTEA,
expires on Sept. 30, 1997, and is probably the most important piece of
domestic legislation that Congress is going to consider this year. Because
of the importance of this program to the counties, ISTEA reauthorization
is one of NACo's top legislative priorities for 1997.
- ISTEA is an important step forward toward a national transportation
policy that knits communities together instead of tearing them apart. Reauthorizing
ISTEA in its current form will be one of the National Trust's highest priorities
in the months ahead. It promises to be a major fight, and we'll need your
- NLC supports the reauthorization of ISTEA, which has generated positive
outcomes, fortifying its visionary objective to link all forms of transportation
into a seamless web to serve the nation. The reauthorization of ISTEA would
preserve a decision-making role for local governments over federal transportation
funds to implement national transportation goals at the local level.
- We have all worked hard to realize the full promise of ISTEA over these
past five years. We see the potential for even more progress ahead with
renewal of this Act, as local officials strengthen and improve partnerships
with state and federal officials, within the ISTEA framework.
Watch this space! We'll be adding a LOT more Pro-ISTEA
views in the near future!
