Transportation Infrastructure loomed as the key topic for the 2009 Legislature. Few public policy topics so universally affect the public as our transportation infrastructure. The Texas Lyceum tackled this compelling topic in its 2008 Public Conference with an innovative presentation and small group facilitation process that engaged nearly 400 audience members in the process of "Establishing Public Policy Priorities."
More than 26 speakers, including U.S. Transportation Secretary Mary Peters, addressed the topics of Freight, Sustainability, Delivering Texas Infrastructure and Financing Options. While the audience was varied in its perspective and geographic representation, the consensus on the priorities were remarkable. The 2008 Journal summarizes the proceedings of the Lyceum's 23rd Annual Public Conference and includes numerous other insightful articles on this critical topic.
