Obama Stimulus Complicates Highway Reauthorization
Public Works Financing
Nossaman's Infrastructure Practice Group chair, Geoffrey S. Yarema is quoted in the Public Works Financing article, "Obama Stimulus Complicates Highway Reauthorization," as saying "The stimulus has the potential for doing real harm. It will potentially convince a lot of people that we've solved the transportation funding problem." According to the article any benefits of the stimulus package's fast-track deficit spending on highway and rail infrastructure would likely be offset by changes to the surface transportation act (SAFETEA-LU) reauthorization.
