COG's Ron Kirby Particpates in National Journal Transportation Debate

On September 16, National Journal brought together a group of political leaders and experts at Union Station to discuss the need to improve America’s aging infrastructure during a time of massive deficits and demands for fiscal restraint. 

Following a debate between Grover Norquist, President of Americans for Tax Reform, and Ed Rendell, Former Governor of Pennsylvania, COG Transportation Planning Director Ron Kirby spoke on a panel that included a wide variety of perspectives on the transportation debate.  Click here for a video of the debate.  (The panel discussion begins at minute 42 of the video.)       

The policy debate examined whether current levels of taxation and spending are sustainable and explored the right transportation related priorities for the Obama administration and Congress in an era of record deficits.
