Daily Policy Briefing - Tuesday

Tuesday, May 9, 2017 | 9:15 a.m. - 9:30 a.m.

In an era when institutions are doubted and opinions pose as facts, APA believes that the federal government needs to provide trustworthy data to guide planning and enable sound decisions at the local, state, and federal levels. That’s why we’re working closely with partners on Capitol Hill and inside the Beltway to advance policies that provide planning departments and local decision makers with high quality federal data. Join APA’s Policy experts in the APA Pavilion for the final policy briefing of NPC17 to learn about what we’re calling on Congress to do to support and expand federal data programs; promote smart technology planning and advancement; and help communities improve coordinated and comprehensive approaches to hazard mitigation planning.
