Transportation for America – an alliance of elected, business and civic leaders from communities across the country advocating for investment in smart, homegrown, locally-driven transportation solutions – released a strongly worded objection to President Trump's budget proposal for FY 2018. The proposal cuts the U.S. Department of Transportation’s discretionary budget by 13 percent, ends the popular TIGER competitive grant program, eliminates the New & Small Starts transit construction program, and terminates funding for long-distance passenger rail funding, among other notable cuts.
