By Cathy Connor, Senior VP and Director of Federal Government Affairs for WSP
Understanding the nation’s infrastructure needs and future plans and keeping track of the myriad of transportation funding options is a tough job in the calmest of years, and today’s political climate has made this an even greater challenge. In this constantly changing world, staying on top of transportation funding is a full-time job. While ASCE members and industry professionals are always up to the challenge of developing designs for the most complicated infrastructure needs, navigating the legislative pathways that lead to the funding that pays for the design and construction can be daunting.
In this month’s ASCE NCS Transportation Committee lecture, Cathy Connor, WSP’s Director of Federal Government Affairs will provide an update on the Trump Administration’s new Infrastructure Plan, what it means to the industry, and what funding options are now available and how you or your clients can take advantage of them to advance your programs. In addition to the Trump Infrastructure Plan, she will discuss the FY 18 and FY 19 USDOT budget/appropriations and FAST Act reauthorization, and the related looming insolvency of the Highway Trust Fund. As anyone who watches the news or follows Twitter feeds knows, things change quickly these days, so by March 27, there may be even more to discuss.
