Congress is considering additional broad stimulus legislation in the coming days to address the impact from COVID-19. Last night, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) released one such proposal, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act). Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi released their own informal proposal as well.
To advance priorities and relief for the highway construction sector, including ACPA members, the Transportation Construction Coalition sent a letter to Capitol Hill highlighting the short-term and long-term positive impacts of infrastructure investment on the U.S. economy.
Action Requested: ACPA is asking members to engage in an industry grassroots campaign and contact your Representatives and Senators today using a prewritten letter asking Congress to include ACPA’s priorities within a future stimulus package. Specifically, this letter is asking Congress to take immediate action to:
- Aid businesses to ensure they can pay their workers and maintain operations;
- Ensure that building materials remain available for construction of vital infrastructure projects;
- Support a long-term recovery through investing in our nation’s infrastructure.
