The group discussed several issues with the federal officials:

  • 2010 U.S. Census impact on Galveston's existing "small urbanized area" status;
  • City of Galveston TIGER III submittal, on behalf of the Port of Galveston;
  • Galveston - Houston Mobility Corridor;
  • Status of Congressional Authorizing Bill for Transportation

“The visit to Washington was very informative and reinforced the need for the City of Galveston to keep in close touch with the events taking place in our nation's capital,” Goodman said.
