Nashville Amp Recieving federal funds
Supporters of a proposed mass transit project said Tuesday’s announcement that Nashville is on track for up to $75 million in federal funding was a critical step forward — maybe even the deciding one.
President Barack Obama’s administration recommended that Nashville receive $27 million in the next fiscal year to help pay for the Amp, a controversial bus rapid transit plan. Metro officials expect to receive the other $48 million they’ve requested over “multiple, consecutive fiscal years,” Mayor Karl Dean said.
