Tennessee Concrete Industry Delivers Transportation Message to State Government

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

More than 200 legislators, staff and government officials attended the Tennessee Concrete Industry’s sixth annual "Day on the Hill" in Nashville on April 1. This cooperative government relations effort between Tennessee ready mix, cement, paving, pipe and precast associations is making strides with the decision-makers in state government. The day began with 20 industry representatives making scheduled small-group office visits to 50 state lawmakers. The industry emphasized the under-investment in infrastructure and the need for long-life, durable concrete solutions. Industry participants also worked to increase awareness on the crisis with the Federal Highway Trust Fund. Additionally, lawmakers learned of the importance of Tennessee’s flagship Concrete Industry Management program at Middle Tennessee State University, Murfreesboro.
As a result of the efforts, the Tennessee General Assembly is advancing Joint Resolution HJR0932 calling on the state’s Congressional Delegation to act quickly to fix the Highway Trust Fund and pass a multi-year Surface Transportation Bill.
