Talking Points ButtonWe must tell all members of Congress that stabilizing and growing federal transportation investment must be a component of any tax reform proposal or infrastructure investment package.  Please tell your members of Congress:

  • I agree with the group of 253 bipartisan House members who wrote to House Ways & Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady (R-Texas) and Ranking Democrat Richard Neal (D-Mass.) earlier this year that a permanent Highway Trust Fund solution should be part of any tax reform plan and that all user-fee revenue options should be on the table to rectify this situation once and for all;
  • Waiting until the next trust fund crisis to act has repeatedly led to last-minute, short-term patches that dilute state efforts to implement long-term transportation improvement plans;
  • Stabilizing and growing federal surface transportation investment would help achieve many of the goals sought in reforming the tax code, specifically creating jobs and enhancing U.S. economic competitiveness
  • If Congress does not act, the Highway Trust Fund will face annual revenue shortfalls of $18 billion once the FAST Act expires; and
  • Congress has a narrow window to address this situation before states will once again be forced to begin delaying projects due to uncertainty about future federal funds.
