California forms Freight Advisory Committee

California's Business, Transportation and Housing Agency has formed the California Freight Advisory Committee, which will help determine the state's plans for freight-related transportation investments in California.

Formation of the committee is in response to the federal Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act (MAP-21), legislation that encourages each state to establish a State Freight Advisory Committee and develop a comprehensive State Freight Plan. The committee will advise the California Department of Transportation, which is in the process of updating the State Freight Plan.
