Use the August Recess to tell your Members of Congress to provide a long-term funding solution for highway and transit infrastructure

The FAST Act, temporarily stabilized federal highway and transit investment by supplementing over $70 billion to cover the Highway Trust Fund’s revenue gap. However, once the FAST Act expires in October 2020, the Highway Trust Fund will once again face funding shortfalls. As a result of failing to permanently fix the Highway Trust Fund, Congress has shifted a total of $143 billion from elsewhere in the federal budget to preserve highway and transit funding. Without a real and permanent solution for financing the Highway Trust Fund, Congress will once again be forced to bail out the trust fund or significantly cut highway and transit funding.
