WASHINGTON D.C. - The conventional wisdom inside the Beltway is that infrastructure reform is perhaps the one policy topic that enjoys broad bipartisan support, but is that really the case? John D. Porcari, WSP USA’s president of advisory services, will debate DJ Gribbin, Brookings Metropolitan Policy Program nonresident senior fellow, as they face off with very different views on the role of the federal government in infrastructure reform and lessons learned from past administrations. The event will take place from 9:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. at The Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C. To learn more, click here.
