  • As the House and Senate go to conference committee for the newest Federal Surface Re-authorization, their have arisen environmental concerns. The proposed Federal Surface Re-authorization bill has proposed
    streamlining of environmental processes in order to accelerate project
    implementation. In this report the breakdown of the proposed
    streamlining for both the House bill, HR 4348 and the Senate bill, S1813
    are broken down and explained.

  • The increase in the presence of law enforcement in schools, especially
    in the form of school resource officers (SROs) has coincided with
    increases in referrals to the justice system, especially for minor
    offenses like disorderly conduct. This is causing lasting harm to youth,
    as arrests and referrals to the juvenile justice system disrupt the
    educational process and can lead to suspension, expulsion, or other
    alienation from school. All of these negative effects set youth on a
    track to drop out of school and put them at greater risk of becoming
    involved in the justice system later on, all at tremendous costs for
    taxpayers aswell the youth themselves and their communities.

Almost all of these trips occur in the nation's 100 largest metro areas, which account for over 95 percent of all transit passenger miles traveled. People take transit for any number of reasons, but one of the most common is to get to work.
