President Signs Transportation Act
President Bush signed the Transportation Act, which will provide $286 billion over six
years to upgrade U.S. roads, bridges and mass transit systems. In a bill signing ceremony
at a Catepillar Inc. facility in Montgomery Illinois, the President said "our economy
depends on us having the most efficient, reliable transportation system in the work. If
we want people working in America, we've got to make sure our highways and roads are modern.
We've got to bring up this transportation system into the 21st century."
