The National Tank Truck Carriers Association recently added US Rep Peter DeFazio, a Democrat from Oregon, as a special speaker for the 71st Annual Conference and Exhibits set for April 23-25 in Las Vegas NV.
DeFazio, who is expected to be the chief architect of the highway portions of any infrastructure bill coming out of Congress this year, will address NTTC’s executive committee at 11:15 am on Thursday, April 25.
The chairman of the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure will be available for more personal conversations Wednesday, April 24, at the PAC reception, which is open to all NTTC PAC donors. Those wishing to attend the reception can donate directly to the PAC or do so by playing in the PAC Golf Tournament on Monday, April 22 (registration forms online). The suggested donation to attend the reception is $200.
Chairman DeFazio was first elected to the US House of Representatives in 1986. He represents Oregon’s 4th Congressional District, covering the state’s southwestern corner and the city of Eugene, and is the longest serving member from Oregon. DeFazio has served on the Transportation and Infrastructure committee his entire tenure. He is an outspoken advocate for dedicated highway funding and developing long-term solutions that promote new infrastructure construction and incorporate resiliency measures into new and existing projects, so they’re built to last.
NTTC’s 2019 Annual Conference and Exhibits at the Wynn Hotel Las Vegas is the premiere gathering of tank truck leadership and industry exhibition event in North America, providing top-tier industry content, tank truck leadership networking and exhibitors from major equipment manufacturers to innovative startups.
