"During the Senate debate, Texas Senator Yarborough made the following comments: 'At long last, this bill begins to look at highway planning not only from a perspective of traffic, but from a human perspective as well. ...At last we are adopting a more human approach that brings together the engineers, the architects, the sociologists, the urban planners, the economists, and others into a coordinated team to consider the total impact of highway construction. But most important, this bill assures that there will be more consulting with those who are most directly affected by highway construction--the community.'"
