The ACPA chapter affiliates last week sent a letter to House and Senate leadership expressing strong support for immediate relief funding to DOTs and timely action on a multi-year highway reauthorization bill.

The letter was addressed to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA), Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-NY).

Writing on behalf of the U.S. concrete pavement industry, the chapter affiliates urge “strong support for granting the immediate use of $50 billion in flexible federal funding to offset the significant revenues shortfalls facing state departments of transportation.”

The chapters also call on Congress to suspend any state/local match requirement on federal aid projects (i.e. 100% federal share) for a two-year period and to “take up a multi-year highway reauthorization bill with significant investment increases that provide states with a measure of certainty that can propel our Nation to economic recovery and prosperity.” Click here to view the letter.
