Bipartisan Group of House Members Mirror ACPA & Coalition Letter to Leadership
Yesterday afternoon, following the letter sent last week by ACPA and allies to Congressional leaders, Seth Moulton (D-MA) and John Katko (R-NY) have sent a letter to Speaker Pelosi and Leaders McCarthy, Schumer, and McConnell urging them to “promptly complete work” on the annual appropriations bill for the Department of Transportation in order to unlock the full impact of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA). Signed by a bipartisan group of 47 Members of Congress and endorsed by 49 associations, including ACPA, the letter describes how the lack of appropriations prevents the Department of Transportation from fully implementing the IIJA and inhibits critical work on America’s infrastructure. The letter copies the ’four corners’, House and Senate Chairmen and Ranking Members of the Appropriations Committees. Notably, the letter does not mirror the request to add an ‘anomaly’ in the upcoming continuing resolution to fully utilize the IIJA. ACPA continues to engage in efforts pushing Congress to unleash the full force of the largest investment in physical infrastructure in a generation.
