Next week the House Transportation and the Environment Subcommittee will be holding a joint hearing with the Senate Budget and Taxation Committee to discuss the draft Consolidated Transportation Program (CTP). Those following Annapolis will be hoping this meeting will give some insights into current transportation revenues and the impact of the federal infrastructure package.

The CTP is the state government’s six-year capital budget for transportation projects. The CTP covers nearly all projects and programs within the Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) and some funding for the Washington Metropolitan Transportation Authority.
