Transportation funding experts will come together to explore 2017 general election results and ballot measure campaigns during a free hour-long webinar on Nov. 9, hosted by ARTBA’s Transportation Investment Advocacy Center™ (TIAC). Speakers will provide a deep dive into the Nov. 7 election outcomes, including insight into congressional races as well as state and local ballot measure results, and overall transportation funding trends from recent years. Research into the reelection rates of lawmakers who supported and opposed a gas tax increase will also be explored.
The free Nov. 9 webinar begins at 3 p.m., Eastern, but requires advance registration.
The session will feature:
Dave Bauer, senior vice president of government relations, ARTBA. Bauer will discuss the results of the 2017 General Election congressional races, and what they means for the transportation construction industry. Bauer will also share his insight on transportation funding developments on Capitol Hill.
Carolyn Kramer, deputy director, ARTBA. Kramer will discuss the outcome of over 200 state, county and local transportation funding ballot measure results from 2017. She will also explore results from previous years and transportation funding trends. Additionally, Kramer will provide insight into the latest research that explores the reelection rates of state lawmakers that have both supported and opposed gas tax increases in 17 states.
The Transportation Investment Advocacy Center™ is an internet-based educational platform that features detailed reports, analyses and case studies of recent transportation funding campaigns—both successful and unsuccessful—mounted in numerous states. It includes television, radio and print ads, polling, an overview of state and local funding and finance mechanisms, and an ongoing blog detailing new developments across the nation.
The Center’s program of work is also guided by the Transportation Investment Advocates Council™, a national network of business professionals and public officials who share a common interest in building support for transportation infrastructure investments in their state or local community.
