Transportation officials, industry experts, and legislative insiders will gather March 1-4 for the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials' annual Washington Briefing to discuss the value of transportation investments to the economy and the need to reauthorize federal highway, transit, and aviation programs.
The meeting, which will take place at the Hyatt Regency on Capitol Hill as Congress considers another extension to the current program authorization, will include a series of guest speakers and concurrent track breakout sessions.
A panel of experts will discuss during a March 3 workshop the incorporation of performance-based programs and measures in the upcoming transportation reauthorization debate. The panel will include representatives from the Obama administration, House, and Senate:
Washington Briefing attendees will not only play a key role in educating congressional members on the importance of transportation investments, they will benefit from a high-quality program of workshops and speakers including U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood. House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman John Mica, R-Florida, has also been invited.
AASHTO has secured a room block at the Hyatt Regency and an overflow room block at the nearby Washington Court Hotel. Both are located just blocks from the U.S. Capitol, within walking distance of House and Senate offices.
