A range of tough policy questions will be on the agenda at this year’s Domenici conference, including the nation’s aging infrastructure, U.S. energy independence, regional economic development and Middle East policy.
In its eighth year, the 2015 Domenici Public Policy Conference will be held Sept. 16 and 17 at the Las Cruces Convention Center. The conference named for former U.S. Sen. Pete Domenici is hosted by New Mexico State University’s Domenici Institute.
It opens on a theme plaguing communities across New Mexico and the country: outdated infrastructure. Speakers include U.S. Secretary of Transportation Mary Peters and Andrew Herrmann, former president of the American Society of Civil Engineers.
