More Rail, Fewer Cars

The future of our economy will depend on a planned transition from cheap fossil fuel (gasoline) to other modes of transportation or living closer to where one works. Our state can be a leader in this regard by encouraging the development of light rail systems that connect some of the larger cities. We need to stop building parking garages and widening lanes -- these are foolish investments in an unsustainable and unaffordable future.
