With Congress finally wrapping up their five-year transportation bill in late 2015, the focus is fully on states when it comes to policy and funding for transportation.
At least 23 states have stepped up and passed new transportation funding legislation since 2012. An unfortunately much smaller number of states have passed smart policies to reform how those dollars are spent. In early 2017, a host of new state legislative sessions will begin again and transportation will be on the front burner in many state capitols.
Our transportation initiative, Transportation for America, is bringing its second Capital Ideas conference to Sacramento, CA this November. Capital Ideas offers a detailed, interactive curriculum of best practices, campaign tactics, innovative policies, and peer-to-peer collaboration to help your initiative succeed — whether you are just beginning a funding campaign,fighting to advance smart policy changes, or defending a key legislative win.
Registration is now open for this conference. There are a limited number of discounted hotel rooms available, so register today.
