Key Issues

Each year the PPC establishes key issues that become the focal points of the Institute’s engagement with congressional decision makers, the administration, and state and local officials. The key issues provide the supporting pillars of our policy-related activities and products. They are driven by and support the Institute’s three domains, which are Aeronautics, R&D, and Space.
