National Transportation Policy in a Time of Retrenchment

Given the current challenges of ballooning national debt, the rising costs of healthcare, and a continuing weak economy, what happens to federal transportation policy? How do other federal priorities affect transportation, and how might transportation contribute to federal priorities? Can a case be made that now is the right time for a coherent and robust national transportation program?

Join us for a lively and interactive presentation on National Transportation Policy in a Time of Retrenchment featuring John Horsley, Executive Director of American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) and SPPD’s Senior Associate Dean Genevieve Giuliano, one of the nation’s leading experts on transportation. Hosted by Dean Jack H. Knott, this is a discussion you won’t want to miss!

Professor Giuliano is the Director of the USC METRANS Center, which is dedicated to solving metropolitan transportation problems through research, education and outreach. Giuliano conducts research on relationships between land use and transportation, transportation policy analysis, and information technology applications in transportation. More…
