Highlights of Portland TEA-21 National Listening Session
Portland, Oregon
July 29, 1998

OVERALL: There was broad support and enthusiasm for the fact that TEA-21 keeps the basic ISTEA policy vision and framework. "TEA-21 retains goods features of ISTEA and makes strides in areas that needed improvement." There was general support for balanced, multi-modal and intermodal approach of TEA-21. On the other hand, locals were concerned that they will not benefit proportionately from increases in funding under TEA-21.

Flexibility: many speakers talked about the need to increase flexibility even further:

"We need to invest and manage on a systems basis."

New Rules, Regulations & Guidance:

"New programs should be funded as soon as possible without extensive rule-making."
