Will 2012 State Of The Union Be Transportation-Heavy?

President Obama gives his State of the Union speech tomorrow (Tuesday) night, and there's a lot of speculation on whether it will focus heavily on transportation again. Last year's speech had more references to transportation than the previous twenty State of the Union speeches.

Despite the talk though, there still hasn't been a federal transportation bill authorized in the year since that speech and many other transportation issues have remained status quo. Transportation Issues Daily tells us what we can expect and how you can weigh in on what the President said after the speech.
