ACPA, NACA Webinar Update

As we reported last week, ACPA and other member associations of the North American Concrete Alliance (NACA) presented a webinar on Feb. 13 to discuss the current status of infrastructure proposals being advanced in Washington, D.C.

The webinar, “Cement and Concrete Industry: Infrastructure State of the Union” featured an overview and insights into the Trump Administration’s infrastructure proposal (released Feb. 12), as well as those being advanced on Capitol Hill. 

An estimated 220 registrants participated in the webinar, which also included a robust Q&A session.  ACPA’s Leif Wathne participated in the webinar, sharing perspectives on highway and airport reauthorization, including funding.

NACA Presents Views on Infrastructure Investment

The North American Concrete Alliance (NACA)* presented strong views on transportation investment to U.S. House Transportation Committee Chairman Bill Shuster (R-Pa.-09) and Ranking Member Peter DeFazio (D-Ore.-04).

In particular, the NACA partner associations recognized the Committees focus on the challenges affecting the nation’s infrastructure, but also expressed concern, “….That the investment in our surface transportation infrastructure is painfully inadequate to meet our current needs, let alone the needs of future generations. We believe that previous efforts fell short and as a result, the Highway Trust Fund (HTF) is still not adequately funded and Congress is no closer to enacting a permanent, or even long-lasting, solution to address its solvency.

The group further stated, “We cannot squander the investments previous generations made by allowing our infrastructure to crumble and collapse,” and encouraged the T&I Committee, “…To make the investments that help ease the congestion and capacity issues that plague our surface transportation network, while simultaneously, building highways for the future that can accommodate current and future trends, including autonomous vehicles, business and distribution corridors, and enhanced access for e-commerce.”
