Tell Congress and the Trump Administration that Now is the Time to Invest in Transportation Infrastructure!
Members of Congress and the Trump Administration are working to develop legislation in response to the coronavirus pandemic, and we need your help. The transportation construction markets, businesses, and jobs are on the line!
Our nation’s transportation infrastructure system is facing significant challenges. State departments of transportation (DOTs) are experiencing major declines in transportation revenue as a result of the pandemic. Consequently, some state DOTs have already delayed planned transportation projects and more are expected. In addition, the FAST Act—the current surface transportation law—is set to expire on September 30, 2020. Further complicating matters the Highway Trust Fund, which provides funding for federal surface transportation programs, was already estimated to have an insufficient balance to support current federal funding levels prior to the pandemic.
Congress must expeditiously address these challenges by investing in our transportation infrastructure. Any delay will put construction jobs in danger and hinder economic recovery efforts. As an important member of the transportation construction industry, please contact the President as well as your U.S. Senators and Representative and urge them to take action now.
