INTERMODAL TRANSPORTATION PLANNING FOR THE ENVIRONMENT: SOCIAL, CULTURAL, AND ECONOMIC CONSIDERATIONS FOR AN INTERDISCIPLINARY SOLUTION FOR CHANGE

The highly technical Clean Air Act amendments of 1990 (CAAA) and the labyrinth of the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991 (ISTEA), enacted to provide the funding for the requirements imposed by the CAAA, evidence the complexity of the recognized interrelationships. The existing statutory scheme imposes limitations on the methods of planning the available funding mechanisms. Relatively modest changes in the law can remove these limitations and will allow the statutory scheme to do what Congress intended it to do, and can simultaneously protect the environmental and economic interests of our nation. This paper analyzes the existing statutory schemes of the federal CAAA and ISTEA and recommends changes that, the authors believe, are realistic and instrumental to the intent of the framers.
