Brokaw on Smart Governance


My thanks to Steve Schmitt, director of the Coalition for Appropriate Transportation, for sending me Tom Brokaw’s recent op-ed on modernizing governance.  Brokaw notes:

Every state and every region in the country is stuck with some form of anachronistic and expensive local government structure that dates to horse-drawn wagons, family farms and small-town convenience.

Brokaw points out that more effective–i.e., less duplicative–approaches to governance can lead to better use of public investment and a stronger response to the challenges of the day. You can read the full op-ed here.
