Boston, MA (March 28, 2007) Conservation Law Foundation Staff Attorney Carrie Russell today released the following statement in response to the release of the Transportation Finance Commission’s funding report:

“The Commission’s report confirms what many of us already know all too well – that our state’s roads, bridges and public transit system are facing a serious financial crisis. We don’t have the money to run the system we have, much less to expand the system to meet the needs of residents and businesses. There will be no single solution to this crisis. Instead, we need to come together now to fully understand the scope of the problem and make the tough decisions about what it will take to fund the transportation system that our state needs to remain competitive.”
