ARTBA ATA banner(WASHINGTON)—The American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) and American Trucking Associations (ATA) are hosting a June 29 lunch and policy discussion to mark the 60th anniversary of the law signed by President Eisenhower that began funding and construction of the nation’s 47,000-mile Interstate Highway System.

It will explore what the Interstates of the future should look like to keep America moving and the U.S. economy growing.

Lunch speakers include:

  • Senate Environment & Public Works Committee Chairman Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.)
  • Fox News contributor and former senior official in the Reagan and George H.W. Bush administrations, Jim Pinkerton, author of “A Vision of American Strength: How Transportation Infrastructure Built the United States.”

Post-lunch participants include:

  • Pat Thomas, ATA Chairman, senior vice president, state government affairs, UPS
  • Brad Dean, president & CEO, Myrtle Beach (S.C.) Chamber of Commerce
  • Jeff Paniati, executive director and chief executive officer, Institute of Transportation Engineers
  • John Lex, professional driver, Walmart Transportation and ATA “America’s Road Team captain

The event will be moderated by Brian Pallasch, managing director, government relations & infrastructure initiatives, American Society of Civil Engineers. Members of the news media wishing to attend the event and have lunch should contact ARTBA’s Eileen Houlihan at ehoulihan@artba.org or 202.289.4434.

WHAT: 60th Anniversary of the Interstate Highway System Lunch & Policy event

WHEN: Wednesday, June 29, 12-3:00 p.m.

WHERE: The National Press Club, 529 14th Street NW, Washington, D.C. 20045

ARTBA was founded in 1902 to advocate a federal-state partnership to build a defined national network of modern, lane-divided roads that would connect all state capitals with each other and with Washington, D.C. That vision became a reality on June 29, 1956, when President Eisenhower signed the law creating the Interstate program and Highway Trust Fund to finance its construction.

American Trucking Associations is the largest national trade association for the trucking industry. Through a federation of 50 affiliated state trucking associations and industry-related conferences and councils, ATA is the voice of the industry America depends on most to move our nation’s freight. Trucking Moves America Forward.
