Des Moines, Iowa hosted a panel discussion with guest speaker Congressman David Young who gave a brief talk and answered questions on federal transportation issues. Young serves on the U.S. House Appropriations Subcommittee on Transportation, Housing and Urban Development.

The panel included metro business leaders from industries, including trucking, commercial development and manufacturing. Panel members discussed how transportation infrastructure and the need for long-term funding affects their company, their employees and Greater Des Moines.

An open street event was also held in Downtown Des Moines. Attendees could grab lunch from local food trucks, sign a DART bus in support and speak with local organizations about the importance of transportation.

Congress, we ask you to provide the long-term investment in our nation’s transportation infrastructure that will keep America moving forward.

A strong, modern transportation system is vital to:

  • Our economy
  • Our local communities
  • Our environment
  • Our safety
  • America's continued mobility

America’s transportation network should work better for all of us and all the ways we use it and rely on it every day.
