NAF event

NAF EVENT…. The new issue of the Washington Monthly covers the right and wrong way to spend $1 trillion on the economy, featuring a story from Phillip Longman on freight rail that’s already sparked some good discussion.

To that end, the New America Foundation is hosting an event this afternoon to explore this and other infrastructure issues in more detail. Longman will be joined by the Millennium Institute’s Alan Drake and Andrea Bassi, former Delaware Transportation Secretary Anne P. Canby, and John Gray, an executive at the Association of American Railroads. The panel discussion will be hosted by Washington Monthly Editor-in-Chief Paul Glastris.

If you’re in D.C. and want to attend, the event will start in about a half-hour at the NAF offices at 1630 Connecticut Avenue. If you’re not in D.C. and want to watch, I’m embedding a video feed below.
