Politician: The surface transportation bill will finance highway, bridge and public transportation projects. This bill includes significant reforms to modernize federal transportation programs, it introduces performance measures and targets to improve accountability, it expands innovative financing programs to leverage limited federal resources, and it consolidates programs by two-thirds to increase efficiency and flexibility for states and cities. Consequently, our citizens can expect a noticeable improvement in our nation's transportation infrastructure.

Which of the following would it be most useful to know in determining whether the impact from the new legislation would be noticeable to the public?

A) Will the legislation actually increase the amount of financing that "transportation alternative" projects such as bicycle and pedestrian pathways receive?
B) Will the new projects in the bill be of a sizable scale for the public to reasonably detect its impact?
C) Will the bill comply with environmental laws and federal permitting requirements?
D) Will the new projects help improve transportation management by local governments, including states and municipalities?
E) Will the new projects be likely to run over budget?

Option A - INCORRECT.
Following the legislation supposed transportation bill project, it's incorrect to think that the legislation will increase the finance that ''transportation alternative'' like pedestrian pathways and bicycle receive and this can't determine whether the impact from the new legislation would be noticeable to the public.

Option B - CORRECT.
Truly the new projects in the bill will definitely be of sizable scale for the public reasonably detecting its impact. Surely by extension the said impact of the new legislation bill will unquestionably be noticeable to the public.

Option C - INCORRECT.
The bill cannot comply with environmental law and federal permitting requirements. Therefore, it cannot be of essence in knowing if the impact from the new legislation would be noticeable to the members of the public.

Option D - INCORRECT.
It is wrong to use new projects which will not improve transportation management by local governments including states and municipalities in determining the impact of the new legislation being seen and publicly known.

Option E - INCORRECT.
Whether the new project is likely to run over budget or not, it still will not be useful in knowing the impact or how noticeable the new legislation will be to the public.
