Developing Strategies for Enhancing Surface and Maritime Mobility
Wednesday, October 02, 2002
The General Accounting Office (GAO) released its August 2002 report to Congress entitled Surface and Maritime Transportation - Developing
Strategies for Enhancing Mobility: A National Challenge. The report discusses the
increasing congestion, particularly on the highways. It noted that federal
spending on waterways remained constant during the period 1991 through 2000, while usage increased. The report recommends, among other things, that Congress focus on the entire system rather than on specific modes to achieve
desired mobility outcomes.
