BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - Vermont lone U.S. Rep. Peter Welch is going to be hearing from some of the state's transportation leaders.

On Monday, Welch is going to be meeting in Burlington with Lt. Gov. Phil Scott, the chairs of the Senate and House transportation committees and Transportation Secretary Brian Searles.

There will also be leaders from transit, bike, pedestrian, electric vehicle and regional planning organizations.

The officials will be discussing public transit and the state's priorities for alternative transportation.

Welch is going to be asking if the officials think the federal Transportation Alternatives program has been successful in Vermont and what federal policies might be changed in order to support alternative transportation methods.
