Speakers included:

  • James Ray, Special Advisor to the Secretary for Infrastructure, U.S. Department of Transportation

Thursday, May 23 began with a breakfast featuring Representative Gallagher and Randy Gordon of National Grain and Feed Association.

Scheduled visits on May 23 included the offices of Senators Baldwin and Johnson, as well as Representatives Duffy, Grothman, Kind, Moore, Pocan Ryan and Sensenbrenner.

“The TDA Fly-In is always an incredibly worthwhile visit to Washington, DC, as it’s filled with briefings, as well as opportunities to meet with our Wisconsin federal delegation to discuss timely transportation issues,” said WCHA Executive Director Dan Fedderly.  “This year’s event with Minnesota allowed us to have a regional approach and discussions with how things work in other states.”
