Coalition Letter to Congress on FHWA's Greenhouse Gas Performance Measure Regulation

Thank you for your commitment to conducting oversight of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA). To that end, the undersigned organizations support congressional efforts to halt the greenhouse gas performance measure regulation finalized Nov. 23 by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). The IIJA represents the most significant infusion of investment in the nation’s infrastructure since the development of the Interstate Highway System in the mid-1950’s. The robust, stable funding levels that the IIJA includes are already making a meaningful impact in rebuilding America’s transportation systems. Our organizations supported investments made in the IIJA, which include programs dedicated to carbon reduction and infrastructure resilience. However, regulatory overreach outside the bounds of the IIJA has the potential to limit improvements to our infrastructure.
