Sec. LaHood from frontSecretary of Transportation Ray LaHood spoke at the ACCE Board of Directors Meeting last Friday.  He provided a overview of progress on stimulus funded projects (focused on discretionary TIGER grants) and talked about other recent DOT programs like the Cash for Clunkers program and the future focus on high speed passenger rail.

The Secretary also stressed the linkage between transportation and economic development, and touched on potential areas of cooperation between DOT and HUD or Commerce to make sure transportation spending really impacts economic development.

Overall, it was a great session.  You can read more on Sec. LaHood's official DOT blog: Welcome to the Fast Lane.
