Freight's Contribution to Virginia's Economy

In this panel, speakers will discuss freight's huge contribution to the Commonwealth's economy; what freight needs; what challenges it faces to have a greater economic impact on Virginia; and what economic opportunities can arise from funding freight transportation. Freight's inclusion as a priority in the new MAP 21 transportation bill makes the topic especially relevant this year.

Moderator: Andy Hecker, Moffatt & Nichol, also staff of the Hampton Roads Transportation Planning Organization's Freight Transportation Advisory Committee
