NEWS: U.S. House Passes Sen. Ossoff’s Bill to Boost Public Transportation Infrastructure in Low-Income & Rural Communities

Sen. Ossoff’s “Local Transit Planning Support Act” will increase funding to plan transit infrastructure in Georgia’s low-income and low-density areas

Washington, D.C. –– Tonight the U.S. House of Representatives passed U.S. Senator Jon Ossoff’s Local Transit Planning Support Act.

The bill passed the U.S. Senate in August and now heads to President Biden’s desk to be signed into law.

“We are delivering on promises to expand transportation infrastructure and economic opportunity for all our communities, especially those that have been historically neglected and excluded,” Sen. Ossoff said.

The Local Transit Planning Support Act will increase Federal funding for transit planning in both low-income and low-density areas and boost economic opportunity and quality of life in urban and rural communities that have historically been underserved and lack access to public transportation.
