Tag Archives: Call to Action

Please Contact Your Governor Today Immediately!

 

ACPA is once again asking for your help with a grassroots advocacy effort. 

Along with other transportation-construction organizations–NAPA, NRMCA, NSSGA and PCA–we are urging all members, affiliates, and staff members to contact their Governor today to urge them to classify highway, airport and roadway construction as essential activities.

As our local, state and federal leaders work to mitigate economic impacts across the country, we need to let them know that the highway construction industry must be designated as an essential industry to ensure that transportation projects vital to our economy and our ability to fight COVID-19 continue uninterrupted. 

Click this link or to send a pre-written letter to your Governor, or to edit the letter to reflect any particular concerns in your state. 

Also, please feel free to share this call-to-action with others in your company to urge their support and assistance. The success of this and any grassroots effort is largely a function of spreading the word and asking for help from colleagues, friends and other associates!

Please contact your US Senators and Members of Congress immediately!

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:

  1. Aid businesses to ensure they can pay their workers and maintain operations;
  2. Ensure that building materials remain available for construction of vital infrastructure projects;
  3. Support a long-term recovery through investing in our nation’s infrastructure.

Thank you for your continued support!
