Brett Smith, senior director of government relations at the American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI), will be the featured speaker during the next SMU Community Chat on Wednesday, May 12, at 11 a.m. ET.
Smith serves as liaison between AISI member companies from the American steel industry and the U.S. Congress and federal agencies. He is an infrastructure policy expert – which means his insights will be of interest as Congress debates a potential multi-trillion-dollar infrastructure package.
Will the Biden administration manage to shepherd through legislation to repair crumbling U.S. roads and bridges, something the country has for decades mostly failed to do?
Other topics that Smith tracks closely are energy and climate change, transportation, and occupational health and safety.
