MetroPolicy for MetroNation

The Brookings Institution recommends a new federal policy framework after next year's presidential inaugeration to address the lack of a "MetroPolicy" aimed at enabling local, regional, and private-sector leaders to meet the nation’s challenges and opportunities.

Here are some of the details of the MetroPolicy Brookings is advancing (click to enlarge):

On first glance (I need to read the report more closely), they seem more centrist, less bold in relying on market-based and tax-credit solutions. But some action on developing effective policy for "maximizing" Metro growth and sustainability is better than the lack of policy and the poor leadership the federal government has exercised in the last decade.
