Scoring works

Bring transportation decisions out from behind closed doors.

Never before have we seen a state agency refuse to implement a new law.

Maryland Department of Transportation (MDOT) is playing games instead of moving forward on the law passed last year to improve accountability, transparency, and fiscal responsibility in the funding of major transportation projects -- with our tax dollars.

Never before have we seen a state agency blatantly lie about a law and what it does.

MDOT is even calling for the law to be repealed.  

Please help us to stand up for more transparency, better transportation projects, and smarter use of taxpayer dollars. Ask your legislators to stay strong, stand up to this bureaucratic nonsense, and bring transportation decisions out from behind closed doors.
