Three statutory programs initiated within recent years are reversing the historical process by which decisions about transportation systems are made. Formerly, the decisions were made by agencies having no responsibility for land use and environmental programs. One of these programs is the Clean Air Amendments of 1970, which has provisions bearing on the implementation of land use and transportation controls that are being made increasingly effective by the Environmental Protection Agency. The other two programs are on the state level and include the model code of the American Law Institute and the Oregon state planning law. This paper reviews each of these programs and points out how each has recognized that decisions about transportation facilities must be made on the context of other program objectives, whether they be the abatement of air pollution or the implementation of a statewide planning process.
