The federal and state governments have a key role to play in the implementation of GO TO 2040. They decide how to allocate billions of dollars annually across a variety of different programs, services, and projects. They also help to define the overall policy environment that influences the decision-making process.
To guide the agency as it works with federal and state partners to implement GO TO 2040, CMAP has articulated federal and state policy positions. On the federal side, the CMAP Board has adopted a legislative agenda, transportation reauthorization principles, and freight policy principles. On the state side, the CMAP Board has identified a legislative framework and agenda, as well as principles for a new state capital program. Each is described below. See an archive of previous agendas and principles.
