The Transportation Policy Committee (TPC) was established by the MAG Regional Council in 2002 to oversee the development of the 20-year Regional Transportation Plan and to guide transportation planning in the region. The TPC is made up of 23 members representing cities and towns across the region, the business community, the Arizona Department of Transportation, Maricopa County, the Native American Indian Community, and the Citizens Transportation Oversight Committee. The committee provides a unique opportunity for business representatives to have a direct say in developing transportation policy for the region.
The TPC has a prescribed membership that has been recognized in state law. Six members must represent region wide business, one of whom must represent transit interests, one of whom must represent freight interests, and one of whom must represent construction interests. Three of the business members are appointed by the President of the Senate and the other three by the Speaker of the House.
The TPC is charged with developing regional transportation policy positions for Regional Council consideration and provides oversight for the implementation of Proposition 400.
