S. Department of Transportation's "Full Scope of Systems Review of the Washington Metropolitan Transit Authority" dated June 10, 2014, and the Director, Department of Rail and Public Transportation, in consultation with the appropriate compliance officer of the Federal Transit Administration and the Chairmen of the House Appropriations and Senate Finance Committees, determines that such recommendations have been addressed."
