ACPA and other TCC partners on Monday sent a letter to the US House and Senate Majority and Minority leaders urging Congress to “swiftly enact legislation to rebuild the transportation network that helps drive our nation’s economy, mobility, and quality of life.”

The letter underscores that few issues offer the combination of wide-ranging, positive impacts and legislative viability as much as infrastructure investment.

The letter specifically asks Congress to pass a five-year reauthorization with significant funding increase and with reforms that build on the regulatory reforms made in past bills. Click here to see the letter.
