|The latest criteria: Avoiding Goal 7 here|
Here's the first draft for comparison. On the one hand it's reasonable to want to simplify, but on the other, the current draft is more autoist.

without language on greenhouse gases
Just as a matter of priority, it is interesting that "efficiency" and "congestion" come before "safety" in the chapter. That may not really be all that important, but it's something to note
As a general approach, the chapter takes care to avoid "less driving" and "fewer drivers" as any part of a strategy for congestion, safety, and efficiency. There's no mention of transit here. It's all hydraulic autoism.
In a fundamental way the draft chapter evades the way driving is problematic, polluting, and dangerous.
On an historical note, in the September minutes there's an interesting tidbit about the gap between wish list and funded actuality in the RTSP over a 20 year span:
Mr. Jackson informed TAC members that as previously requested, he researched the status of the projects in the 1996 RTSP. He reported that of the ninety projects included in the 1996 RTSP, thirty-four have been completed and nineteen are probably done but with changes in the description.
