Innovations in Transportation Policy Applying Free‐​Market Reforms to the Highway, Amtrak, and FAA Reauthorization Bills

Capitol Hill Briefing
June 27, 2003 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM EDT

B-369 Rayburn House Office Building

Featuring Rep. Mark Kennedy (R-Minn.), Member, House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee; and Peter VanDoren, Editor, Regulation.

The simultaneous expiration of the acts authorizing federal support of aviation, Amtrak, highways, and transit in 2003 gives Congress the opportunity to ask fundamental questions. Are there better ways to improve transportation than simply spending more of the taxpayers' money? Representative Kennedy will discuss his reform proposal, the Freeing Alternatives for Speedy Transportation (FAST) Act. Peter VanDoren will discuss other market-based reforms for transportation on roads, rails, and air.
