Capitol Hill Transportation Briefing Set for Thursday, Sept 17th

I will be participating in a Capitol Hill briefing on federal transportation funding reauthorization on Thursday, September 17th, in the Rayburn House Office Building in Washington, D.C. The event is sponsored by the Cato Institute and titled "Toward a Customer-Driven Transportation Reauthorization."

Here are a few more details from the event flyer:

In reauthorizing federal funding for transportation, Congress has a choice between top-down policies whose focus is on reducing American mobility at almost any cost and customer-driven policies whose focus is on enabling mobility while cost-effectively minimizing the environmental impact of that mobility. The "Surface Transportation Act of 2009: A Blueprint for Investment and Reform" from the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure firmly chooses the former strategy. Please join Rep. Scott Garrett, author Sam Staley, and Cato Institute scholar Randal O'Toole to discuss alternatives that will save taxpayers billions while doing far more to protect the environment.

Cato events on Capitol Hill are free of charge and open to the public. To register for this event, please fill out the form below and click submit or email events@cato.org

The event is open to the public and lunch is included if you RSVP!

Samuel Staley is Research Fellow
