ACPA is encouraging members to circle this Thursday on your calendar and to make plans to participate in the Transportation Construction Coalition (TCC) Virtual Washington Briefing tomorrow, May 21 from 11:15 to 1:00 p.m. (CDT) /12:15-2:00 p.m. (EDT).

For those interested in the event, we strongly urge you to register as soon as possible. Registration is free of charge for TCC members, including all member and affiliates of ACPA. Click here to register.

As we have reported previously, the TCC Fly-In was canceled earlier this spring due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, to continue to provide useful and timely information about the prospects of infrastructure legislation as part of COVID-19 recovery efforts and the prospects of highway reauthorization this fall, TCC will present this virtual briefing in its place.

Featured presenters include:

  • Chairman John Barrasso (R-WY), Senate Environment & Public Works Committee (confirmed)
  • Ranking Member Tom Carper (D-DE), Senate Environment & Public Works Committee (confirmed)
  • Chairman Peter DeFazio (D-OR), House Transportation & Infrastructure Committee (confirmed)
  • Ranking Member Sam Graves (R-MO), House Transportation & Infrastructure Committee(invited)

Why is this event important now? The briefing from Congressional leaders will address the status of current pandemic relief and recovery efforts and infrastructure legislation in Congress, as well as the status of reauthorization of the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act, which expires Sept. 30.

Of course, an immediate infusion of $50 billion for state departments of transportation and an inclusion of a multi-year surface transportation bill, continue to be TCC’s main priorities.

For those interested in the event, we strongly urge you to register as soon as possible. Registration is free of charge for TCC members, including all member and affiliates of ACPA. Click here to register.
