Washington, D.C. -- U.S. Sen. Jim Jeffords, I – Vt., today released the following statement on the “2004 Urban Mobility Report,” issued by the Texas Transportation Institute (TTI). “This report confirms what commuters already know, across the nation traffic is getting worse and we are spending more time on the roads than ever before. The report underscores why Congress must pass a Highway Bill that gives the funding and resources that states and local jurisdictions need to move forward with transportation projects. We must get the Highway bill back on track and out of the political traffic jam it’s currently stuck in.” The report can be found at: http://mobility.tamu.edu/ums/.
