THE ROLE OF SUBSTATE REGIONS IN TRANSPORTATION PLANNING, PROGRAMMING, AND BUDGETING: SUMMARY REPORT
The purpose of this research was twofold: (1) the formulation of alternative concepts for substate regions and regional organizations in Pennsylvania as a basis for transportation planning, programming, and budgeting; and (2) the preparation of draft legislation dealing with substate regionalism in Pennsylvania. Major recommendations of the research indicate that (1) a Regional Planning and Development Council (RPDC) should be established in each substate region; (2) legislation implementing the RPDCs should be of a general comprehensive nature; and (3) certain transportation planning functions should be delegated to an RPDC by PennDOT through a cooperative agreement.
