      In their book “Deconstructing the Administrative State,” Emmett McGroarty and Erin Tuttle highlight this phenomenon in the U.S. Department of Transportation’s deployment of mass-transit grants through its Capital Investment Grants : Karla Jones. Most federal funding from the mass transit account is distributed to transit agencies through formula programs. Most of the general funding authorized is for the Capital Investment Grants (CIG) Program, also known as New Starts, which provides discretionary funding for large capital projects to create and extend rail and bus rapid transit systems. In large part because of these many policy implications, the history of urban transit in the United States has been fiercely debated.

Mass transit grants if properly implemented, FTA initiatives should improve oversight: report to selected members of Congress. Washington, D.C.: Gaithersburg, MD (P.O.
