The majority of Oklahoma’s transportation funding comes from the federal government.  In the last year, the Federal Highway Trust Fund has been replenished twice with multi-billion bailouts from Congress, but a long-term solution to funding infrastructure must be found. 

 

In order to foster understanding among Oklahoma stakeholders about this critical issue, TRUST is partnering with The Oklahoma State Chamber to host a series of moderated question and answer panel discussions on solving the federal funding crisis.  McAlester is the fourth of five events statewide.
