Federal grants for multimodal projects announced this month are decidedly not multimodal. As our research has shown previously, the Trump administration has dramatically undermined this grant program by funding traditional road projects that could otherwise already be funded by states, siphoning resources from other, harder to fund projects—the original intent of the program.

blog, but suppose you added something to maybe grab folk's attention? I mean Trump’s USDOT BUILDs even more roads - Restore T.R.U.S.T.
is a little boring. You ought to peek at Yahoo's home page and
see how they create news titles to get viewers interested.

You might add a related video or a picture or two to get readers excited about what you've got to say.
In my opinion, it might bring your posts a little bit more
interesting.
