CSG Webinar: States Act to Bolster Transportation Funding. June 14, 2013

The Economic Development, Transportation and Cultural Affairs Committee of the Southern Legislative Conference recently conducted a webinar entitled "States Act to Bolster Transportation Funding: Lessons from the South."  Webinar participants heard from Georgia, South Carolina and Virginia on recent measures initiated in these SLC states to advance transportation and infrastructure development efforts. Against the backdrop of inertia at the federal level, dozens of states across the country have introduced, and sometimes enacted, reform measures to adequately fund their transportation and infrastructure networks. Given that adequate and ongoing infrastructure investments are critical for economic growth, state policymakers, particularly those in the SLC states, are moving proactively to devise funding mechanisms for these programs.
