Date set for Rochester Transportation and Infrastructure Listening Session

Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman Congressman John L. Mica (R-FL) is hosting listening sessions and other meetings around the country to inform the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee’s drafting of a long-term reauthorization of the nation’s surface transportation programs.

The Committee is seeking input on how to consolidate and improve the performance of programs, cut government red tape and streamline the project delivery process, increase private sector investment in our infrastructure, identify creative financing alternatives, and other ideas for writing the legislation. The previous multi-year law (SAFETEA-LU) expired in September 2009.

The only listening session for New York will be held at the Greater Rochester International Airport’s International Arrival Hall in Rochester, NY on February 18, 2011.

NOTE: This is a listening session of the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, and not an official hearing of the Committee.  Witnesses have been invited to speak, but the public is invited to attend, and reportedly will be able to submit written comments to the committee as well. No RSVP information is available for these event.

This is an opportunity to tell members of the Congressional Transportation and Infrastructure Committee that trail, bike, and pedestrian projects are worth federal investment!
