This has been an unprecedented time in American history. The spread of coronavirus around the globe has quickly become a life-changing experience for every American and a major disruptor to our economy.
As of last week, Congress started to close down nearly all public access to the Capitol. Most Congressional offices are teleworking or operating with reduced staff. Restaurants and bars in D.C. are now closed and the streets are mostly empty. The Highway Users are operating remotely and still open for business, ready to fight for our members during this difficult time.
We will continue to advocate for highway investment and a long-term highway bill throughout this period. Today we sent a letter to Senate and House leadership asking them to include highway funding in economic relief legislation and to ensure that the trucking industry is fully supported during this critical time to ensure food, water, fuel, goods, medical supplies, mail and packages reach Americans who so desperately need them.
Please stay safe, stay well, spend time with your family and stay in touch.
