November 11, 1977 memo from Transportation Secretary Brock Adams to President Carter summarizing the draft surface transportation reauthorization legislation that USDOT had just submitted to the Office of Management and Budget and to White House policy staff. The memo also discusses something that was not in the proposed legislation – Adams’s proposal for a permanent revenue stream for mass transit from “user-based taxes on petroleum.” Contains a hand-written note from Carter in the margins to classify the proposal under urban policy.
