NaWiPoMo: Confederation Transportation Authority

The Confederation Transportation Authority is a government agency created by the Transportation Control Act during Governor-General Henderson Dewey's first term in office. The C.T.A. has wide powers to control railroads, airmobile lines, and interconfederation truckers. Although this seems to contradict the general tenor of Dewey's programs, which involve devolving power from the national government to the confederations, it seems likely that the C.T.A. either reduced regulations, delegated authority to confederation-level agencies, or both. As part of Dewey's "dismantling operation," the C.T.A. presumably superceded and consolidated several previous national transportation agencies such as the Railroad Control Commission.
