Arizona Chapter-AGC Stands Up for Transportation

On Thursday, April 9, 2015, the nationwide Stand Up for Transportation Day, David Martin, Arizona Chapter-AGC president, addressed a crowd on the economic benefits of investing in transportation infrastructure with Congressman Ruben Gallego and Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton. This was part of a nationwide effort to call attention to the importance of infrastructure investment and the need for a long-term surface transportation authorization bill. MAP-21, which is the federal surface transportation legislation, expires on May 31. In all, 353 organizations hosted events across the U.S. The loss of federal funds would impact bus and train service, as well as jeopardize new service and long-term transportation projects.
