WHO: NLC President Chris Coleman, mayor, St. Paul, Minn.

WHAT: U.S. House of Representatives Transportation Subcommittee on Highways and Transit hearing "Examining the Current and Future Demands on FTA's Capital Investment Grants." Mayor Coleman will speak about the Federal Transit Administration's (FTA) New Starts program and the reliance of cities and localities to utilize program funding to help build their transit systems.

The National League of Cities – representing cities large and small – views transit funding as a critical federal investment and supports continued support for the New Starts and Small Starts program to spur economic growth across America. A recent analysis by the nonprofit organization Reconnecting America found 729 transportation projects are planned in 109 regions, projecting to cost more than $250 billion dollars. If the New Starts program continues at its current size, it would take more than 80 years for all of these projects to be built – too long to wait. 

WHEN: Wednesday, Dec. 11 at 2:00 p.m. EST

WHERE: 2167 Rayburn House Office Building

The National League of Cities (NLC) is dedicated to helping city leaders build better communities. NLC is a resource and advocate for 19,000 cities, towns and villages, representing more than 218 million Americans.
