FutureView’s 2020 Election Outcome Webinar: Transit Impacts at the Federal, State, and Local Levels

 

Thursday, November 5, 3:00 – 4:15 pm ET

Public transportation advocates and practitioners closely watched the November 3 elections for a number of key reasons. The presidential election and makeup of the United States House of Representatives and Senate and which party will be in the majority is at stake. The final outcome will directly affect the public transportation agenda in the critical years ahead. At the local level, voters have decided several high-profile transit ballot measures and the community investments they will bring. Speakers will report up-to-the-minute information in all areas, key campaign messages, and the specific implications on public transportation
