ACPA, along with NAPA and PCA, sent a letter to both House and Senate transportation committee leadership expressing appreciation for their support in reauthorizing the Accelerated Implementation and Deployment of Pavement Technologies (AID-PT) program.
Representing the main material suppliers to our nation’s highways and roads, the associations underscored the important role the three materials industries play in identifying and deploying innovative pavement solutions necessary to deliver a cost efficient and safe roadway network while, at the same time, reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
ACPA, NAPA, and PCA reviewed the AID-PT program as it exists in current law, and the proposed changes made to this section by H.R. 2, the INVEST in America Act and S. 2302, America’s Transportation Infrastructure Act (ATIA). The associations made some modest adjustments in the proposed changes that will strengthen and focus the AID-PT program and the proposed “Materials to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions Program” that was included in the ATIA.
In general, the changes are aimed at fine-tuning and clarifying language, as well as requesting an increase in funding from $12 million to $14 million.
