This position paper is presented as a detailed program of what should be done and how it can be achieved. It is a comprehensive program that claims to treat the differing needs of the states effectively and with equity. In order to make the Federal-Aid Highway financing process more effective and flexible, consolidation and reduction in the number of categories is necessary. The following major categories are recommended for funding: interstate highways; bridge; primary; urban system program; rural program; and safety. In order to assure adequate funding and the most efficient use of available funds, recommendations are made in the area of transferability, and highway financing. Other recommendations discussed here include administrative and technical changes regarding tolls, Davis-Bacon Act, and the development of incentives as opposed to penalties. Program goals prorities, and associated costs, the interstate and defense highway systems, resurfacing, restoration, rehabilitation and reconstruction are also discussed.
