Dear Secretary LaHood: As the Assistant Director of Transportation for a rural county in California, I'm concerned about your recently reported inclination to rely on state transportation departments to convey Economic Stimulus Program funds [at an equitable level] to local entities - counties and municipalities. It has been my experience, over a fifteen-year period, that state authorities - state Transportation Commission and state Department of Transportation - consistently feed state needs and starve those of local entities. The Economic Stimulus "process" requires a mechanism to deliver an appropriate slice of the pie to local governments for their staggering backlogs of transportation system needs.
