ITS America released the following statement in response to this annoncement.
“ITS America is encouraged by the Obama Administration’s introduction of the GROW AMERICA Act, as it demonstrates their commitment to improving the safety and efficiency of the surface transportation network while addressing the nation’s crumbling infrastructure,” said ITS America President and CEO Scott Belcher. “We commend President Obama and Secretary Foxx for putting forward a concrete proposal and we stand ready to support the Administration and Congress as they work to reauthorize and find sustainable funding for surface transportation programs.
