Implementation of reforms and requirements included in the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21) will be the focus of a Subcommittee on Highways and Transit hearing on Thursday under Chairman Tom Petri (R-WI).

The subcommittee hearing is scheduled to begin at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, March 14, 2013 in 2167 Rayburn House Office Building.  This is Petri’s first hearing of the 113th Congress as subcommittee chairman.  Additional information, testimony, and live webcast link will be posted here as it becomes available. 

MAP-21 is the current surface transportation law, which was enacted last July and expires at the end of Fiscal Year 2014.  The law included a number of reforms and mandates to help streamline the project approval process, consolidate Department of Transportation programs, improve program accountability, and more. 

“Ensuring that the Department of Transportation is making progress in implementing MAP-21 provisions, and preparing for the next surface transportation reauthorization are both Committee priorities this Congress,” Petri said.  “I look forward to hearing from the Department on its efforts to implement major reforms such as project delivery and program consolidation required by MAP-21.”

Thursday’s scheduled witnesses are:

  • Honorable Victor M. Mendez, Administrator, Federal Highway Administration
  • Honorable Peter M. Rogoff, Administrator, Federal Transit Administration
  • Honorable Anne S. Ferro, Administrator, Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration
  • Honorable David L. Strickland, Administrator, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration
