Transportation Secretary Chao announced that USDOT has published a Federal Register notice asking the public for ideas to indentify and reduce unnecessary regulatory obstacles that complicate and slow down infrastructure projects across the nation.

Comments should be received on or before July 24, 2017. Late-filed comments will be considered to the extent practicable.
