Train Station Meeting - Ending - January 29, 2015
What about SEPTA?
Why it took so long.
And how Congress has and is still is causing the delay (6 years of doing nothing).
I thought we would hear how SEPTA would proceed bringing service to Coatesville, Parkesburg and Atglen a few days after the January meeting. So I waited to put this last post up.
Since nothing has happened since about the middle of February, I tried to find out why.
On May 31st. the Highway Fund, which includes SEPTA funding, runs out of money. Unless Congress does something and funds it. Good luck with that.
"Bridges and roads take years to build, but too often states and communities haven’t known if funding would be there for them more than a few months at a time.
So they stop planning and slowed building."
-Secretary of Transportation Anthony Foxx - AUGUST 8, 2014
At the Methodist Church January 29, 2015:
"With the release his FY 2016 budget proposal, President Obama has put forth a plan to stabilize the Highway Trust Fund and reauthorize the federal surface transportation programs. Now the ball is in Congress’s court."
