Letter to to Congressional Leaders Encouraging Fully Honoring IIJA Funding Levels for Highway Trust Fund Programs in FY 2022 Appropriations
Our coalition of public and private sector stakeholders in the transportation industry first write to extend our appreciation for the robust transportation infrastructure funding included in the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA). The Appropriations Committees in the House and Senate played a critical role in the development and passage of this historic legislation that will benefit the entire country. With that said, we can begin to fulfill the promise of the IIJA expected by the public only when full-year appropriations for Fiscal Year (FY) 2022 becomes available—the outcome that all of the signing organizations recognize and fully and unreservedly support. We also recognize that the House and Senate have yet to resolve their differences to finalize negotiations for FY 2022 appropriations including for Transportation, Housing and Urban Development and Related Agencies (THUD) and is relying on yet another Continuing Resolution (CR) through February 18, 2022.
