TRB Webinar: Debt Finance Practices for Surface Transportation: Current Issues and Research Needs
 View Description 
The Transportation Research Board (TRB) will conduct a webinar on April 2, 2015, from 2:00pm to 4:00pm ET that will explore a variety of policy issues related to the issuance and management of debt for surface transportation projects.
