Episode Description

On this week's Capital Thinking, Bret Boyles will step in as guest host once again and start off by speaking with Melodi Gates, who was recently appointed to Department of Homeland Security's Data Privacy and Integrity Advisory Committee (DPIAC). Melodi will provide an overview of DPIAC, discuss the relationship between cybersecurity and privacy, and identify some core issues in these developing policy and legal areas. Bret, a Gulf state native, understands the urgent need for recovery along the Gulf Coast as a result of natural and manmade disasters such as Hurricane Katrina and the Deep Water Horizon spill. In the next segment, Bret will speak with Jeff Turner and Aubrey Rothrock about the Resources and Ecosystems Sustainability, Tourist Opportunities and Revived Economy of the Gulf Coast Act of 2011, or the RESTORE Act, on how the law will help facilitate restoration efforts on the economic and environmental fronts for the states affected. In the second half hour, we will rebroadcast last week's segments on transportation reauthorization by Norma Krayem and Jared Fleisher. Norma and Jared separately discussed, among other issues, innovative financing, freight policy and transit aspects of the transportation funding extension known as MAP-21.
