Join IBTTA for the
4th Annual Transportation Finance Summit – Washington DC, December 3-4, 2007 at the Fairmont Hotel

The Federal Highway Trust Fund will go bust in the next 12 months. Many state transportation trust funds face a similar destiny. More and more states and regions are waking up to the reality that they cannot rely on the Federal government alone to solve the transportation funding crisis. They must solve their problems on their own or with limited help from Washington. The experts at the 4th annual IBTTA Transportation Finance Summit in Washington, DC, December 3-4 are veterans of funding battles won and lost. They know what works and what doesn’t. This Summit is designed to be a tool box for elected officials, transportation leaders and practitioners in states, cities, counties, regions, town and MPOs.
