Last year, Congress passed a five-year highway & transit bill, known as the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act.
Unfortunately, the bill did not provide a long-term sustainable revenue source for the Highway Trust. Instead, it transferred $70 billion from the General Fund to the Highway Trust Fund. What this means is that when the FAST Act expires on September 30, 2020, the Highway Trust Fund will require an estimated $18 billion annually just to maintain its current investment levels.
Urge your members of Congress to find a long-term, sustainable solution for financing the Highway Trust Fund.
