A View From the Hill

COMTO's annual A View From the Hill is a day of legislative advocacy on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC that brings together legislative and industry experts to discuss relevant issues facing the industry. The program begins with a panel discussion and concludes with COMTO members making visits to their Congressional officials and representatives. These Congressional meetings serve to share COMTO's message, legislative directives, and views on the rehabilitation and revitalization of America’s transportation infrastructure. A View From the Hill ensures the continuation of COMTO’s mission of ensuring a level playing field and maximum participation in the transportation industries for minority individuals, businesses, and communities of color. 

COMTO will host an informational webinar prior to the A View From the Hill program to help prepare COMTO members for advocacy activities. This program is coordinated by the Legislative Advisory Council. 

COMTO members are encouraged to schedule meetings with their Congressional officials and representatives as soon as possible. Please click here to schedule your meeting online. 



COMTO's 2017 View From the Hill, scheduled for Tuesday, March 14 in Washington, DC at the Capitol Visitors Center, has been cancelled.

Due to severe weather conditions expected to affect Washington, DC this evening, causing many key participants to cancel, COMTO will not be hosting its annual View From the Hill on March 14, 2017. We are looking to reschedule this event for Fall 2017, in close proximity to our annual CBC/COMTO Transportation Braintrust.

We apologize for the inconvenience. Please be on the lookout for rescheduling information later this year.
