For the first time since 2019, the CSRA DC Leadership Trip was back in action last week in Washington, DC. A delegation of private and public sector leaders from 4 chambers across 2 states arrived in DC last Tuesday and by Thursday, had crossed off quite a few to-do items from the list in advocating for our region.
Central to the trip are the top economic and policy issues most important to our community that we discuss with state departments and elected officials. They include the pressing needs for infrastructure projects such as a permanent solution to the New Savannah Bluff Lock and Dam and the need to alleviate traffic congestion and improve commuter times surrounding Ft. Gordon. Missions at both Savannah River Site and Ft. Gordon are always important issues to discuss with members of Congress and we were pleased to report the considerable progress at Plant Vogtle and its imminent timeline for power generation during this year’s trip.
