Oregon Statutes - Chapter 391 - Mass Transportation - Section 391.110 - Legislative findings.

(1) The Legislative Assembly finds that economic growth and livability depend on a solid transportation infrastructure to aid in the production and distribution of goods and services and the efficient movement of people.

(2) The Legislative Assembly also finds that an efficient surface transportation system in our metropolitan areas must balance highways and arterial roads with mass transit and light rail facilities. Mass transit and light rail improvements can lessen the cost of highway expansion, reconstruction and maintenance by significantly decreasing traffic flow.

(3) Therefore, the Legislative Assembly shall establish the Regional Light Rail Extension Construction Fund as a means of facilitating the development of a balanced surface transportation system that includes the appropriate application of highways, light rail and mass transit. [1989 c.868 §2]
