In conjunction with the ITS America Annual Meeting, U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood has decided to convene a USDOT Surface Transportation Reauthorization Outreach Meeting to solicit the views of key stakeholders on ways to improve the delivery of surface transportation programs. The meeting is scheduled from 12:30 - 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday, May 5, immediately following ITS America's Closing Plenary which will feature keynote presentations by Secretary LaHood and Sam Palmisano, Chairman and CEO of IBM. It is part of a series of sessions across the country designed to bring together Federal, state and local officials, as well as transportation providers, users, and other stakeholders, to discuss the upcoming surface transportation reauthorization. If you are interested in attending the USDOT Reauthorization meeting, please contact Charlie Tennyson at ctennyson@itsa.org for additional information.
