TRANSPORTATION POLICY FOR A CHANGING AMERICA
The Secretary of Transportation outlines the broad directions and goals he expects to pursue in developing federal transportation policies and programs for the future. Longstanding objectives and concerns such as economic development, national security, the efficient management of the public transportation sector and a vital competitive and responsive private transportation sector are still important elements of our philosophy. But other concerns and priorities will have to be accomodated, in particular: energy conservation and production, environmental protection and enchancement, safety, quality of life, and improved resource allocations, both human and material.
