-- How Will You Use This Story? --


(OPEN):
LAST WEEK [THE WEEK OF JUNE 25TH], BOTH HOUSES OF CONGRESS APPROVED A LONG-TERM TRANSPORTATION-BILL.  HOWEVER, PETE RAHN [LIKE "RON"]--THE NATIONAL-TRANSPORTATION LEADER FOR H-N-T-B CORPORATION--SAYS THAT, WHILE IT'S AN IMPORTANT FIRST-STEP, MORE WORK NEEDS TO BE DONE...

(RAHN):
"
STATE DEPARTMENTS-OF-TRANSPORTATION, AND RELATED INDUSTRIES, ARE APPLAUDING THESE VOTES IN CONGRESS TO APPROVE A 27-MONTH TRANSPORTATION-AUTHORIZATION AND -FUNDING PROGRAM.  WHILE THIS LEGISLATION WILL MOVE THE NATION'S TRANSPORTATION-POLICY IN THE RIGHT-DIRECTION, THE REAL QUESTION THAT REMAINS UNANSWERED IS:  HOW WILL OUR NATION PAY FOR TRANSPORTATION IN THE FUTURE?"

(CLOSE):
TO READ MORE ABOUT THE NEED FOR A LONG-TERM, WELL-FUNDED TRANSPORTATION-PLAN THAT INCLUDES MULTIPLE MODES-OF-TRAVEL, VISIT "H-N-T-B"-DOT-COM.
