Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx Luncheon moved to July 21
July 12, 2014 | By Angela Greiling Keane | email@example.com
Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx will speak about increasing U.S. transportation infrastructure spending at a National Press Club luncheon on Monday July 21. (Note the new date for the speech.)
In the midst of last-minute congressional efforts to avoid a shortfall in the Highway Trust Fund, Foxx will speak about the need for long-term transportation investment, arguing that the ongoing lack of certainty and stability poses an even greater threat to the country’s ability to grow.
Foxx is a former mayor of Charlotte, North Carolina, who became transportation secretary last year.
Lunch will be served at 12:30 p.m., with remarks beginning at 1 p.m., followed by a question-and-answer session ending at 2 p.m.
Tickets cost $22 for Club members, who may purchase 2 tickets at this rate, and $36 for all other non-member tickets.
Club Members who wish to attend the pre-luncheon reception must RSVP separately to VIPreception@press.org no later than 48 hours before the event. Space may be limited. You must have a paid reservation to the luncheon to attend the VIP reception.
Submit a question in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org before 10 a.m. on the day of the luncheon. Put FOXX in the subject line.
