The 2015 Fixing America's Surface Transportation Act (better known as the FAST Act) has been a long time coming, and was a little slow to finish, but finally made its way through Congress and was signed by the President this past Friday. The new 5-year, $305 billion bill reauthorizes the federal highway and public transportation programs for FY 2016–2020 and will stabilize the Highway Trust Fund (HTF) during that time. Highlights include an increase of $20+ billion (over 5 years) for highway investment. Read ARTBA’s comprehensive analysis of this important legislation.
