Under Governor Malloy, Connecticut has taken significant steps towards improving its transportation infrastructure, particularly public transportation. But there’s still much more to be done, including fully implementing the New Haven-Springfield rail project, increasing investment in public transit, and bringing the state’s roads and bridges into a state of good repair. With little hope for new revenue in a new federal transportation bill, where does that leave Connecticut?
The Transit for Connecticut coalition is hosting a forum next month that aims to answer this. On December 10, join elected officials, business leaders and advocates to learn about Transportation Funding in CT: Where Are We Now and What is Next? The forum’s keynote speaker is Jack Basso, the Director of Program Finance and Management for the Association of State Transportation Agencies (AASHTO).
Other speakers include:
- ConnDOT Commissioner Jim Redeker,
- Emil Frankel, Visiting Scholar, Bipartisan Policy Center,
- Oz Griebel, CEO, MetroHartford Alliance, and;
- Joe McGee, Vice President of Public Policy and Programs, The Business Council of Fairfield County
The program runs from 9 am to noon (registration begins at 8:30 am) at the State Capitol’s Old Judiciary Room in Hartford. Tri-State Transportation Campaign is a co-sponsor of the event.
RSVPs should be sent by December 3 to Valerie Wormely-Radford at firstname.lastname@example.org.
