More bad news on the data front. All of this just punctuates why the
TRB Committees' effort behind the Transportation Information Needs
Assessment (TINA) Study is so important. There is still one more week

Don't forget when entering your ideas to associate them with a TRB
committee by its number. There is a link to to ALL the TRB committee

One of our committee members, Tom Zabelsky, called yesterday to share
this devastating news. By now, many of you probably heard. The
Presidents fiscal year 2007 budget does not include funding for the
2007 Vehicle Inventory and Use Survey (VIUS), a component of the
Economic Census. Another huge data gap to fill! This decision impacts
many critical programs in DOT, DOE, EPA
Tom is taking comments, questions and supports. His number is 301
