This is the February 27, 2014 hearing "Improving the Nation's Highway Freight Network," held before the Subcommittee on Highways and Transit of the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure of the U.S. House of Representatives. From Chairman Petri's opening statement: "Today's hearing will focus on how we can improve the Nation's highway freight network. Current Federal surface transportation authorization MAP--21 expires September 30th of this year. As the subcommittee begins its work on drafting the successor to MAP-- 21 [Moving Ahead for Progress - 21], we must understand how we can improve the safety, efficiency and reliability of the Nation's highway freight network. Safe and efficient movement of freight throughout the United States directly impacts the day-to-day lives of every one of our Nation's citizens. Basic necessities, such as food and clothing, rely on many modes of the freight transportation system to reach consumers. American businesses rely on an efficient, safe, reliable freight system to move their goods to domestic and to international markets." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Mark Gottlieb, Gerald R. Bennett, Henry J. Maier, and Susan Alt.
