Ed Wytkind Talks Transportation Devolution on The Rick Smith Show

By Admin

Did you miss TTD President Ed Wytkind discussing transportation devolution on The Rick Smith Show? You’re in luck — you can listen to the show here on the MoveAmerica blog.

As the countdown to the 2016 presidential election keeps ticking, several GOP presidential candidates have inserted transportation devolution into their campaign platforms. They seem to think such proposals will win them votes. Ed joined the Rick Smith Show to discuss why we think otherwise:

“Devolution is a fancy word for dumping all the responsibilities on the states and basically obliterating the federal transportation investment program by getting rid of the gas tax and telling states, ‘you can do it better, and oh by the way, you have to go find the money because we’re going to kill all the federal funding programs, too.’”

Listen to the show to learn more about TTD’s position on transportation devolution and which GOP candidates are threatening to tear down our national transportation infrastructure.
