CCD Transportation TF Code of Participation
It is the policy of the Transportation Task Force to express its policy positions through the use of sign-ons for letters, comments, statements for the record, and testimony when possible, feasible and desirable. Sign-on letters demonstrate the breadth of support the position has within the Task Force and within the disability community so they are the preferred method of communicating the Task Force positions to the public.
