On January 16, 2019 the Policy Institute hosted a legislative briefing in the U.S. House of Representatives Rayburn Administrative Building, graciously hosted by Congressman John Garamendi’s office. The briefing, titled The 3 Revolutions in Transportation: Governance Needs & Opportunities drew a diverse crowd of about 50 government, academic, and industry representatives.
