As Washington looks to shore up our nation’s outdated infrastructure, there’s one challenge taking priority… severe weather.
Modernizing infrastructure will be the topic this afternoon as Cassidy Senior Vice President Charles Brittingham will be a featured panelist at a Pew Trust event on investing in sustainable solutions.
Despite the deep partisanship in Washington, last year Charles helped play an integral role as the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee tackled bipartisan legislation for the nation’s water infrastructure, including some progress on resilience, by passing WRDA 2016. Charles will discuss lessons learned that could help a future congressional infrastructure package.
Just last week Cassidy was a featured sponsor of Infrastructure Week, hosting its closing reception with U.S. Reps. Rosa DeLauro (D-CT) and Garret Graves (R-LA).
