Member Alert: Tell Your Senators to Support Transportation Funding

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

Dear NRMCA Member,

The current short-term funding patch for surface transportation programs is set to expire on Friday, July 31. With the deadline fast approaching, Congress must act immediately to provide a long-term funding solution and pass a multi-year transportation bill to keep these programs running and the ready mixed concrete pouring in the construction and transportation industries. To keep Congress on the right path, your Senators need to hear from you: tell Congress to FIX the HIGHWAY TRUST FUND NOW! Without congressional action, bridges won’t be built, interchanges won’t be expanded, contracts won’t be signed and America’s roads will fall further into disrepair, costing time and productivity to Americans from coast to coast.

Click here to tell your Senators that now is the time to fix our highways!

The Department of Transportation has warned that failure to fix the current funding problem before the end of July will result in states cancelling or deferring projects due to the lack of funding predictability. Further, DOT Secretary Foxx said that if a bill isn’t passed by the end of July, the U.S. Department of Transportation is planning on notifying states that the agency could begin rationing funds as early as July. This rationing would result in delayed payments to contractors. The Time to Act is Now!
