WASHINGTON, D.C. — The House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure will hold “listening sessions” and other meetings around the country to inform the Committee's drafting of a long-term reauthorization of the nation's surface transportation programs.

A listening session is not an official hearing of the Committee.

The Committee is seeking input on how to consolidate and improve the performance of programs, cut government red tape and streamline the project delivery process, increase private sector investment in our infrastructure, identify creative financing alternatives, and other ideas for writing the legislation. The previous multi-year law (SAFETEA-LU) expired in September 2009.
