New Policy Pulse Blog: The Container

This week CQ Roll Call launched the third of its Policy Pulse blogs, The Container. Written by veteran politics and policy reporter Tom Curry, the blog will cover all facets of transportation, from car-sharing to ports to aviation, as well as the continuing efforts of Congress to remake the Highway Trust Fund.

Tom has already written about a House Transportation Committee roundtable in New York on public-private partnerships for infrastructure projects, about a bottleneck for coal exports and about a transportation bill that’s really about bees. Check out The Container at

The Container joins Technocrat and Five by Five in the Policy Pulse ranks.

Welcome to Technocrat

Anne L Kim Technocrat 330x219 Welcome to TechnocratGood morning and welcome to Technocrat, a new CQ Roll Call policy blog that will cover the technology and telecom community in Washington.

A little about myself: I’m from the other Washington and graduated from the University of Washington in Seattle, where the region houses tech companies such as Amazon and Microsoft, and of course, good coffee. I’ve spent the past few years covering congressional committee markups and floor action for CQ Roll Call, focusing on legislation related to technology, transportation, science, and more recently health.

You can find one of my more recent stories — about the Capitol Hill reaction to NASA’s proposal to lasso an asteroid — via Roll Call here.
