Learn why and how a record number of transportation investment initiatives have passed since 2013 at the 4th Annual “National Workshop for State & Local Transportation Advocates,” being held July 12 at the Hyatt Regency Washington in Washington, D.C.
This year’s Workshop will feature several advocates sharing best practices and lessons learned from transportation funding campaigns throughout the country to help other states build their own campaigns. Workshop attendees will:
- Hear from representatives & advocates from all five states that passed a gas tax increase in 2017, as well as the sole state to pass a gas tax increase in 2016;
- Learn from lawmakers about the best strategies for increasing support in your state’s legislature;
- Get insight into the latest research in transportation funding trends;
- Examine the challenges and advantages of different motor fuel tax structures and alternative transportation funding options, and more.
“There is no other event like this in the country that provides an opportunity for advocates to gather and discuss issues. The National Workshop provides forums to share information on the issues we face and the solutions we develop.” (Juva Barber, executive director of Kentuckians for Better Transportation)
The Workshop, a signature program of the Transportation Investment Advocacy Center™ (TIAC), is being held in conjunction with ARTBA’s Public-Private Partnerships (P3) in Transportation Conference.
