If Congress fails to act, cities will have to delay or cancel projects indefinitely. For <br />local governments, transportation keeps economies moving and growing and ensures that freight <br />gets to its final destination. <br />Local governments are the major owners and operators of roads, bridges and transit <br />systems in the United States and contribute substantial amounts of funds for transportation. <br />Building and maintaining the transportation network would not be possible without the federal - <br />state -local partnership and federal funds that support highways, bridges, and transit systems. <br />A strong transportation network is good for the economy. Transportation creates jobs, <br />and moves people and goods around our community and throughout the country. The <br />transportation projects in our city benefit our local community and contribute to the economy <br />encourage you to act quickly to adopt legislation that continues to support these vital <br />transportation links to our national transportation network. <br />Thank you for your continued support for strong, vibrant local communities. <br />Sincerely, 1/ <br />Marx <br />ayor <br />Cc: City Council <br />JKevin McCarty, US Conference of Mayors, kmccagy@usma. o�g <br />
