The Mesa County Commissioners this morning proclaimed April Stand Up for Transportation Day.
Stand Up for Transportation is a national transportation infrastructure day that highlights the need to invest in updating our nation's transportation infrastructure.
The Commissioners wrote: "Transportation is the economic backbone of our nation's economy, and public transportation is an important part of our nation's transportation system. Federal funding for public transportation infrastructure needs to increase and Congress needs to pass a long-term, multimodal transportation bill by May 31, 2015."
