Hello NCSL transportation listserv,


The April/May issue of NCSL's transportation newsletter, Transport Report, is now available.


As usual, this month’s issue has the latest on state and federal transportation policy, news and trends. Here are just a few of the questions you’ll find answers to:


What’s in the two federal reauthorization proposals? The U.S. DOT and the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee have some ideas about the future of federal surface transportation programs and funding.

What else is going on with transportation policy at the federal level? Learn about new rail rules, tax extenders, progress on the Water Resources Development Act and more.


Which states allow self-driving cars on their roadways? Get a closer look at recent legislative action and regulatory milestones.


What well-known traffic safety organization just changed its name? Plus, find out about the many traffic safety themes that are commemorated in April and May.


Which state is about to be the first to raise its  gas tax in 2014? And, get a quick refresher on the states that raised or reformed gas taxes in 2013.


Do any states ban auto manufacturers from selling directly to consumers? And on the flip side, learn which states are working to help certain car manufacturers do just that.


Where can I get more in-depth information about state and federal transportation policy? From webinars and blogs, to special rates on conferences and events, NCSL has a wealth of resources for you. 


Archived issues of the newsletter are also available online. As always, please contact us if you have any questions!


Warm regards,
