(WASHINGTON, D.C.) – The American Highway Users Alliance commends Ranking Member Sam Graves (R-Mo.) and the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure Republicans for introducing the “Surface Transportation Advanced through Reform, Technology & Efficient Review Act 2.0” (STARTER Act 2.0).
STARTER 2.0 includes several measures important to the Highway Users including:
- $400 billion over five-years on federal-aid highway projects,
- Important streamlining provisions,
- Flexibility for states and non-federal partners giving them more decision-making authority to meet their own unique infrastructure needs.
“The Highway Users appreciates the hard work of Ranking Member Graves and the Committee Republicans on this proposal. We are hopeful that a bipartisan process will occur in the House like it did in the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works this week. It is timely and valuable that Republicans have brought their ideas to the table to advance that process,” stated Laura Perrotta, President and CEO of the American Highway Users Alliance.
The American Highway Users Alliance represents motorists, RV enthusiasts, truckers, bus companies, motorcyclists, and a broad cross-section of businesses that depend on safe and efficient highways to transport their families, customers, employees, and products. Highway Users members pay the taxes that finance the federal highway program and advocate public policies that dedicate those taxes to improved highway safety and mobility.
