AM 4: Federal Policy: A New World Order?

Magic Kingdom Ballroom 4

Sponsored by Automobile Club of Southern California

Federal funding and polices have driven transportation decisions for decades. But, in recent years, this role and how to pay for it has become less certain. The debate continues as a new Administration seeks to increase and hasten infrastructure investment and as many states and localities have stepped-up their own spending plans. Decisions made at the federal level will impact state and local transportation efforts for years to come. Our panel of experts will tackle the big questions being asked in Washington, D.C. and how the answers will impact Southern California’s transportation future.
