"Pondering the Future; Transportation Panel Sets Interim Report"
The Bond Buyer
Nossaman Partner and Chair of the firm’s Infrastructure Practice Group, Geoff Yarema is quoted in The Bond Buyer article, "Pondering The Future – Transportation Panel Sets Interim Report." Mr. Yarema was appointed by Secretary of Transportation Mary Peters to serve on The National Surface Transportation Infrastructure Financing Commission, which is set to release an interim report on the future funding options for the nation’s surface transportation system. The panel has been meeting to discuss various transportation funding issues, including federal gas tax utilization and the use of public private partnerships. Through working together over the past few months the Financing Commission has made significant progress, though Mr. Yarema added, "I'm hoping we'll have some disagreements because that will help sharpen our thinking and challenges us to be more analytical. Any differences that we have are likely to be over important issues that should create robust discussion." Click here for more information about the firm's Infrastructure Practice Group.
