Though not commonly viewed as a \Latino\ issue, federal transportation policies have enormous implications for Hispanic workers and for the neighborhoods where they reside. Like other Americans, Latinos care about living in safe and healthy communities and getting a chance to find good paying jobs; ends that can be accomplished through the development and enforcement of effective federal transportation policies. This paper brings attention to key policy issues for Latinos in TEA-21 reauthorization, and points lawmakers to areas of the legislation that can produce meaningful results for the Hispanic community.
