A message from our Director, Allison Rusnak

As the Director of the Office of Legislative Affairs and Policy Communications, my team and I aim to meet the needs of the Federal Highway Administration, the U.S. Department of Transportation, and the U.S. Congress in terms of legislative and policy development. We work closely with stakeholders to analyze congressional proposals related to highways, manage the Agency's development and implementation of highway authorization bills, effectively respond to congressional requests for technical assistance and reports on project statuses, and provide mission-critical briefing materials to FHWA and USDOT officials.
