ARTBA-SQUARE.png88 Strong: ARTBA Assembles Coalition To Call On Congress To Act (Fast)

With less than 30 days left before the current FAST (Fixing America's Surface Transportation) Act is due to expire, ARTBA took to the virtual road to assemble a large and diverse group of key trade associations, labor unions and business groups. This group, 88 members strong, joined ARTBA in signing a letter to Congress, calling for action.

The letter, dated September 9, urged Congress to support the passage of legislation before them, which includes:

  1. A year-long extension of the current surface transportation law, with increased investment levels.
  2. Emergency federal funding for state DOTs ($37 billion) and public transportation agencies ($32 billion).
  3. Provisions that will ensure the solvency of the Highway Trust Fund for the duration of the extension (at a minimum).

LICA urges all its members to help support ARTBA in its efforts on behalf of our industry. Be a part of ARTBA’s national grassroots campaign to help preserve federal transportation spending by clicking here.
