This event took place February 26, 2016.
The FAST Act listening session was intended to help executives and policy makers attending the Washington Briefing understand what changes were made to key United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) finance programs, highlight other finance-related provisions of interest, and to provide members with a status update on implementation. The FAST Act was also an opportunity for USDOT staff to hear questions from project sponsors.
