Freight Testimony

At the invitation of Congressman Dan Lipinski, CMAP Board chairman Gerald Bennett testified on February 27, 2014, at a special House of Representatives hearing on the importance of freight.  Mayor Bennett emphasized the need for a multimodal approach with strategic investments such as those prioritized by our region's CREATE public-private partnership.  CMAP's position is that, despite some advances in MAP-21, the federal transportation bill represented a missed opportunity to establish a national freight policy.  See a video of the House panel, which also included Wisconsin transportation secretary Mark Gottlieb, FedEx Ground president and CEO Henry Maier, and Volvo senior vice president Susan Alt.
