The L.A. Coalition Calls on the U.S. Department of Transportation to Secure Funding for L.A. Metro’s Purple Line Extension

Dear Secretary Foxx:

On behalf of the members of the Los Angeles Coalition for the Economy & Jobs (L.A. Coalition) we are writing to express our support as you consider issuing a Full Funding Grant Agreement and a Transportation Infrastructure Finance and Innovation loan (TIFIA) for L.A. Metro’s Purple Line Extension. As you are aware President Obama’s Fiscal Year 2015 Budget included $100 million for this project, along with a recommendation that the project be issued a Full Funding Grant Agreement.

The full letter can be found [here].
