NRMCA, Allies Ask Congress for Robust FAST Act Extension

Print this Article | Send to Colleague

NRMCA has joined its coalition partners to urge Congress to extend the federal surface transportation programs for one year. With the FAST Act authorities expiring at the end of September, it is critical that Congress act quickly to extend these programs.

  • NRMCA joined the Transportation Construction Coalition and a wide range of transportation construction associations to call on Congress to pass a one-year extension with emergency funding for state departments of transportation (DOT). You can read the coalition letter headed by the Transportation Construction Coalition and Chamber of Commerce here.
  • The North American Concrete Alliance (NACA) established a grassroots alert for NRMCA, PCA, ACPA and other NACA member associations to send messages to Congress and the president urging a one- year extension and emergency funding for state DOTs to reinstate canceled and delayed projects.

In a private meeting, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell late last week told the NRMCA Government Affairs team that he expected a one-year extension of the FAST Act to be attached to the upcoming continuing resolution and pass Congress before the September 30 deadline. This week, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer indicated that the continuing resolution and the one-year FAST Act reauthorization would come to the floor next week.
