America Fast Forward plan gets Time’s attention

In recent weeks, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa has taken to calling the 30/10 Initiative by a new name: America Fast Forward. The idea is to drive home the point to Congress that the plan to expand federal loans and financing for transit projects is something that can help regions throughout the U.S. — not just Los Angeles County.

Mayor Villaraigosa — who serves on the Metro Board of Directors along with three of his appointees — has been making the media rounds  promote the plan as Congress is set to possibly tackle a new transportation spending bill later this year. As part of that, America Fast Forward is featured in this video from Time.
