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.

Letter Urges StandAlone Vote on IIJA

The thousands of men and women who work across the aggregates industry, and their counterparts who work in millions of jobs related to the construction industry, depend upon congressional action to keep their livelihoods and provide for their families. Unfortunately, that is in jeopardy as unnecessary politics has tied the fate of the bipartisan IIJA to an unfinished, partisan budget reconciliation package. The Houses failure to vote on the IIJA at the end of September led to a short-term patch, keeping the Highway Trust Fund (HTF) operational until November 1.

TCC Letter to Progressive Caucus

The transportation construction industry and its union partners build projects and sustain well-paying jobs that bring community and economic benefit to every corner of our nation. We share the commitment of the Congressional Progressive Caucus to building next-generation infrastructure that is designed to promote equal economic opportunity for all Americans.

TCC Letter to House GOP Leadership

The 33 national associations and labor unions of the Transportation Construction Coalition are writing to respond to a recent misleading fact sheet circulated by House Republican Leadership on the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. We disagree with the assertion that this bill is nothing more than a “Trojan Horse” to pass another measure. This legislation, on its own, would increase every state’s highway formula funding by an average of 35 percent.

Coalition Letter from the Transportation Construction Coalition (TCC) in Support of the IIJA bill

The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) provides a generational opportunity to invest in the nation’s highway, bridge, public transit, airport and other infrastructure programs. Transportation improvements connect people and communities, while yielding short and long-term improvements across the economy. The 33 national associations and labor unions that make up the Transportation Construction Coalition (TCC) urge all members to vote YES on final passage of the IIJA in the House.  

Letter to Support IIJA to the House

The Senate-passed bipartisan infrastructure bill—the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA)—represents a historic opportunity to provide substantial economic and quality of life enhancements to communities across the country and to build for the future. The investments made in the package would facilitate long overdue repairs and improvements to our roads, bridges, rail, and public transportation, and other critical infrastructure, such as airports, ports, broadband, energy, and water systems. The undersigned organizations encourage all members of the U.S.

HMG Urges House Passage of IIJA

The Highway Materials Group (HMG) thanks you for your leadership and urges immediate passage of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) – H.R. 3684 – before the current one-year extension of the FAST Act expires on September 30th. We are appreciative of the robust levels IIJA provides our surface transportation network and the countless improvements it will provide our dilapidated infrastructure network.

NSSGA Urges House Passage of IIJA

On behalf of the 400 members of the National Stone, Sand and Gravel Association (NSSGA) I am writing to share our strong support for H.R. 3684, the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), recently passed by the Senate with bipartisan support and urge its passage through the House as quickly as possible. IIJA is a historic, robust bipartisan infrastructure bill that will significantly enhance our crumbling infrastructure network, improve our national economy and global competitiveness, and provide hundreds of thousands of good-paying jobs throughout the country.
