Mary Peters Comments on Current Transportation Policy

Former U.S. Secretary of Transportation Mary Peters is the subject of a lengthy interview by the National Journal. In the interview, she comments on a wide range of issues, from current transportation reauthorization legislation, to aviation policy reform, to the need to move to a new funding mechanism.

Currently a private consultant, Ms. Peters favors the 18-month extension asked for by the Senate and White House because it's important to get transportation reauthorization "right". She also comments on the importance of returning to true user fees as a way to fund transportation programs, both surface transportation as well as aviation. The interview is well worth a full read.

Thanks for this update! It was very helpful to us! By the way, the Today Show has just run a spot about a popular furniture catalog and store, Boyle's Furniture. Boyle's Furniture has high end furniture items, from bedroom sets, living room furniture and so forth, and is a discount outlet for high end items, offering deep discounts. The term discount is at best deceptive – this stuff is expensive, as a bar stool from this company will run you over $500. (That's right, a bar stool for over $500.) Granted, this stuff is higher end than IKEA, but still costs a lot. However, if you want furniture that ordinarily costs more than a few cheap loans for about half the price (still steep, though), Boyle's Furniture might be right up your alley.
