This week saw promising developments on two topics of concern for counties. An apparent breakthrough on a major federal infrastructure initiative has rekindled hopes that long-pending transportation and resilience efforts may get a kickstart. A wave of State announcements on cybersecurity promises more resources and focus on a vexing problem facing governments everywhere.

Conduit Street has your coverage, including our weekly podcast where your co-hosts dive into both topics!
