ACPA and almost 40 organizations sent a letter to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) expressing strong support for the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee’s transporation bill, America’s Transportation Infrastructure Act, S. 2302.
The letter notes that S. 2302 “provides a rare opportunity to benefit all states and continue the nation’s longest economic expansion in history.” The authors note that although the EPW Committee has unanimously approved a critical federal infrastructure initiative, the rest of the Senate to take the next steps.
The letter also commends EPW Committee Chairman John Barrasso (R-WY), Ranking Member Tom Carper (D-DE) and all committee members for “proactively moving forward with a reauthorization of the federal highway program more than a year before it expires. History has demonstrated that delaying action on such measures until their deadline leads to two outcomes: short-term extensions; and disruption of state highway improvement plans.”
