NEW YORK STATE SENATE

Notice of Public Hearing




Title:  Full Steam Ahead? Joint Hearing on the MTA’s 2010 - 2014 Capital Plan

Subject and Purpose:  In October the MTA issued a Capital Plan that details the projects it intends to construct and develop over the next five years. Of the nearly $30 billion in projected capital needs, the Authority is already nearly $10 billion short.  A recent Citizens Budget Commission  report criticized the MTA’s design and  management of Capital Plan Projects. In light of these concerns, this hearing will focus on the specifics of the proposed plan and funding strategies, as well as the process by which such plans are prepared and executed.  The purpose is to improve the process and make it more transparent and accountable. The Committee will receive testimony from the MTA, advocates and the general public.
