In an article published on the website CenterMaryland, Donald C. Fry –the President and CEO of the Greater Baltimore Committee — offers views on the still thwarted efforts to support both federal and state transportation funding. From the article:
During the last 10 years our state’s lawmakers have been chronically unable or unwilling to address Maryland’s growing crisis in funding transportation infrastructure. The result has been a massive unfunded backlog of priority road, transit, port and airport projects and a virtual halt to any major work on new transportation infrastructure. This is not good for a state where its two major metropolitan regions regularly show up on the nation’s most-congested lists.
