A Programming Note for Tomorrow

Tomorrow, Metro will be hosting the much discussed Town Hall meeting with Senator Barbara Boxer and USDOT Secretary Ray LaHood about the priorities for the next reauthorization of the Federal Transportation Trust Fund. LA Streetsblog will be in attendance to provide the best coverage we can.

Given that the first press conference, held by advocacy groups, begins at 8:30 A.M. and the event doesn’t end until the late afternoon; I’m not certain how often LA Streetsblog will be updated, if at all.  There will be live tweeting of the conference as the day wears on, and, if nothing else, you can follow us at http://twitter.com/lastreetsblog.
