CNN/Money: Gas tax may be next Tea Party target "A bill was recently introduced by Senate Republicans that would allow states to opt out of the federal highway program."

Alex Marshall: Turning Transportation Infrastructure into a Publicly Traded Asset "There is really no denying that transportation makes money. Just consider the huge shopping malls perched around interstate off-ramps, the office parks positioned close to airports, the skyscrapers next to subway stations. But transportation itself is usually a money loser. We pour billions of public dollars into highways, airports and transit systems, while others, the home builders, the department store mavens, make the money that comes slows from those public investments. Hong Kong's metro system, MTR, has changed this equation, and that is why it's worth looking at."
