“Transportation Moves America’s Economy” is the theme of the 2011 TCC Legislative Fly-In, based at Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Washington, D.C. The event will kick off May 24 with a 2 p.m. Legislative Briefing, followed by a 6 p.m. Capitol Hill reception. A breakfast session on May 25 will lead into participants’ meetings with their representatives on Capitol Hill. A group of TCC sponsors have planned a separate “Rally for Roads” on the National Mall, scheduled in between the second day’s morning and afternoon sessions.
TCC is co-chaired by American Road & Transportation Builders Association and Associated General Contractors of America, with sponsors including all major national concrete, aggregate and cement groups whose members are stakeholders in transportation infrastructure.
