AGC-sponsored Weekly Standard Transportation Infrastructure Forum
 
Virginia DOT Secretary Sean Connaughton, Reason Foundation's Robert Poole, Carlyle Group's Barry Gold and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's Bruce Josten discuss the need for significant reforms to the federal transportation program. 

AGC of America sponsored a forum on the conservative case for transportation. Hosted by the Weekly Standard, it was the magazine’s first-ever policy event.

The event, which was moderated by conservative commentator Fred Barnes, included a panel conversation featuring Virginia Secretary of Transportation Sean Connaughton, Oklahoma Congressman James Lankford, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s top lobbyist Bruce Josten, and other business and think tank officials.  During the forum, the panel discussed the need to refocus the federal transportation program on maintaining and expanding key interstate and commerce corridors.
