June 4-5, 2013
The Transportation Construction Coalition (TCC) scored a major victory last year when the, “Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act” (MAP-21) became law. The legislation provided a two year authorization through the end of Fiscal Year 2014 and sufficient revenue to support current funding levels. MAP-21 also accomplished significant reforms in the federal-aid highway and transit programs that will give states more say over what projects are to be built and expediting the environmental review and planning process to speed up delivery of necessary transportation infrastructure projects. Senators and Representatives have told us that hearing from the folks back home about the need for transportation investment was an important factor in getting MAP-21 enacted.
With this major victory behind us, now is the time to address the long term viability of the Highway Trust Fund by providing the revenue necessary to fix the Nation’s current and growing transportation investment deficit. As Congress continues to debate the budget, deficit spending and revenue it is important that transportation investment be central to the discussions.
Your members of Congress need to hear from you again. They must understand the dire impact on their states, districts and the National economy if Congress fails to take action to address the long term financial solvency of the HTF. Join your industry allies in Washington, DC on June 4–5, 2013 for the Transportation Construction Coalition’s 2013 Legislative Fly-In and deliver the message to Congress that timely reauthorization of MAP-21 must be a priority.
