Transportation Roundtable with LaHood and McCaskill
About two dozen mayors and executives met with U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood and U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill on Oct. 7, 2011, at the Harry S. Truman Library and Museum in Independence, Mo., to discuss the region's transportation needs. From transit and freight issues to system condition and technology, officials emphasized how the Kansas City region is working together and leveraging federal resources. They urged the passage of a new surface transportation bill, which is critical for maintaining infrastructure, staying competitive, and putting people to work.
