He'll be joined by Congressman Scott Rigell, Bobby Scott, Rob Wittman, Norfolk Mayor Paul Fraim and Virginia Beach Mayor Will Sessoms. 

The bipartisan forum will focus on meeting the challenges Hampton Roads faces due to sea level rise and land subsidence and how to promote action on the federal, state and local levels to address the region’s needs. 

The conference features two panels of federal policy experts and regional stakeholders that will discuss federal policy needs and the process of coordinating work on these issues across government, academia and private sector.
