MCI's Melaniphy Testifies on Economic Impact of Transit Investment

Michael P. Melaniphy, vice president, public sector, for Motor Coach Industries, stressed the nationwide economic impact of public transportation investment in his testimony July 16 before the Subcommittee on Highways and Transit of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, chaired by Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-OR) regarding the next surface transportation authorization bill.

According to Melaniphy, testifying on behalf of APTA: “This next authorization bill is imperative for the jobs and economic opportunities that it will create, for companies such as mine, and many others throughout the industry. This is an industry with a long and extended supplier base, and the investment that the Surface Transportation Authorization Act will provide will have an immense impact on jobs and our economy both immediately and for years to come.”

The hearing focused on the importance of long-term authorization in sustaining economic recovery.
