(WASHINGTON, D.C.) – The American Highway Users Alliance issued the following statement on the extension of the FAST Act:
“The Highway Users is disappointed that after a tumultuous week of furious negotiations and political battles the ‘Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA),’ is being sidelined when it should have been enacted this summer for a 30-day extension of the FAST Act authorization,” stated President & CEO Laura Perrotta.
“Congress must step up and pass this vitally important bill immediately to do what every politician says they care about – invest in our infrastructure. Americans are tired of the partisan politics and the inefficiencies of Washington.”
“The Highway Users will continue to push until the IIJA is enacted. Every American deserves this level of investment in our highways, in our safety, and in our nation.”
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.
