“This summer Congress finds itself once again driving full-speed toward the ‘highway cliff,’ the moment when our transportation law expires and Washington suddenly can't meet its promises to help states build highways, fix their bridges, and keep the nation's cars and trucks moving.”
That’s Politico’s introduction to the latest issue of their new magazine “The Agenda.”
We’ll talk about the possible future of transportation with Politico contributor Boer Deng in the first half of the program. Her article is titled: “When do we get hover cars?” We’ll talk about Mini-copters, Driverless pods, Vacuum tubes, and Supertrains.
In the second half our guest is Michael Grunwald, a senior staff writer for POLITICO Magazine and editor-at-large of The Agenda. We’ll talk about Milwaukee’s expensive new interchanges, Roads v. Public Transit, New roads v. repairing old ones, The gas tax, Potential new ways to fund transportation (Pay as you go plans) and other topics.
