Hardhats for Highways: Have You Gotten Involved?

Your senators and representatives will be back working in your home districts April 14-25.  It is the perfect opportunity to set up meetings to discuss the importance federal highway funding has on your company and your job. Make an appointment to visit the District office closest to you. Bring a hardhat with your company logo and affix a "Hardhats for Highways" decal listing the number of jobs in your company that will be affected if funding is cut off. While these are the best times to visit, don’t hesitate to set up appointments at other times and visit with their staff members.

We also encourage you and your employees to send "e-Hardhat" letters telling them to take action. Your involvement is critical to the success of this campaign and getting Congress to fix the Highway Trust Fund. To date, Hardhats for Highways has already distributed 12,500 hardhat decals to companies in the construction industry. More than 1,500 "e-Hardhat" letters have been sent to 261 different Congressional offices in 43 states. For more information, please contact Brynn Huneke at (703) 837-5376 or brynn.huneke@agc.org.
