On Tuesday, Oct. 20 at 1:30 p.m., we hope you’ll join the members of Oregon Business & Industry and the Oregon Business Council, as we sit down with our own Representative Peter DeFazio, the chair of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure. Rep. DeFazio will let us know what to expect from a federal infrastructure package and what Oregon should do to prepare. Moderating the discussion will be Curtis Robinhold, executive director of the Port of Portland.
From improving the quality of local roads and highways, to expanding mass transportation and building a new interstate bridge, Oregon leaders – including in the business community – have raised concerns about our state infrastructure for years. Rep. DeFazio is leading the effort at the federal level to address these issues. We hope you’ll join us to learn more.
