Lofgren, Angela worked successfully with the White House Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ), White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP), and the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee towards the inclusion of bipartisan legislation related to electric vehicle charging infrastructure at federal agencies in the multi-year surface transportation reauthorization bill that was signed into law.

More recently, Angela managed drug pricing and surprise billing legislation, Medicaid and Medicare reimbursement policy, and proposals impacting the Affordable Care Act, for hospitals, physicians, and other stakeholders, including life sciences companies in the private sector. She also advocated for transit funding and transit program priorities for next year’s surface transportation reauthorization bill.
