A View from the Hill
COMTO’s A View From the Hill is a series of legislative advocacy that occurs every September on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC, bringing together legislative and industry experts to discuss relevant issues facing the transportation industry. The program begins with a legislative panel discussion and concludes with COMTO members making visits to their respective Congressional officials and representatives. These Congressional meetings serve to share COMTO’s message, legislative agenda, and views on the rehabilitation and revitalization of America’s transportation infrastructure.
A View From the Hill ensures the continuation of COMTO’s mission of ensuring a level playing field and maximum participation in the transportation industries for minority individuals, businesses, and communities of color.
This year, A View from the Hill took members to The White House! COMTO members enjoyed participating in an exclusive tour of The White House, a private discussion with Ryan Berni, Special Assistant to the President and Senior Advisor for Infrastructure Implementation and a briefing from the Presidential Personnel Office. Special Assistant and Senior Advisor Berni discussed the Administration’s strategies for leveraging IIJA and associated programs to reimagine infrastructure in America and ensure equity and sustainability are the guideposts. Members were excited to hear about the current and future infrastructure projects and the various initiatives to build an equitable workforce for all.
COMTO appreciates everyone who attended and contributed to making this year’s A View From the Hill activities impactful and change-making! We look forward to seeing everyone next year.
