Rethinking America’s Highways, A Policy Briefing Luncheon and Book Forum

August 30, 2018 @ 11:30 am - September 21, 2018 @ 1:00 pm

Bob Poole, Director of Transportation Policy at the Reason Foundation and a renowned expert on surface transportation, has advised four administrations on infrastructure. His landmark 1988 policy paper paved the way for privately financed toll lanes to relieve congestion. He oversaw the study that led to HOT lanes, a transportation option Georgia has embraced.

Poole, who is also a Georgia Public Policy Foundation Senior Fellow, will discuss his new book, “Rethinking America’s Highways,” at an 11:30 AM Policy Briefing Luncheon and Book Forum at the Georgian Club on Friday, September 21.

Registration is $50. A limited number of books are available for pre-order at the discounted price of $20.
