The letter of Dec. 17, signed by WGA Executive Director Jim Ogsbury, emphasized “the need for a more robust, diverse, and equitable national transportation infrastructure; the modernization of cyber systems to protect against unauthorized access; the benefits of utilizing state data in federal decision making; and the importance of federal consultation with states in the development of policy."
