Building a Better Transportation Network Would Boost the Economy

Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner posted a good piece on his blog yesterday. It's worth a read.

He reiterates the Administration's commitment to transportation and an infrastructure bank to finance new projects based on merit, not porkbarrel politics. And he uses some interesting examples -- improving transportation lines within and out of Seattle and New York City, and how that can benefit Montanans and Nebraskans -- to illustrate how vital our transportation network is to economic productivity.

With the right investment portfolio, our transportation system can help lift the economy, generating real green jobs and a better future for us and our kids.
