The Highway Users focuses on multiple legislative priorities that promote safe and uncongested roads. Read more about our key issues and policy statements below:
The Highway Users urged Congressional leaders to include a repeal of the rescission of $7.6 billion in Federal-aid highway contract authority as the Fiscal Year 2020 appropriations process moves forward. Congress is exploring including this vitally important repeal of the rescission in the National Defense Authorization Act, or some other appropriations vehicle and we wholeheartedly support that action.
The Highway Users congratulates the “Big 4” bipartisan leadership of the Senate Environment and Public Works (EPW) Committee – Chairman John Barrasso (R-Wy.), Ranking Member Tom Carper (D-De.), Transportation Subcommittee Chairman Shelley Moore Capito (R-WVa.) and Ranking Member Ben Cardin (D-Md.) – on their bipartisan agreement to co-sponsor America’s Transportation Infrastructure Act of 2019 (ATIA).View all Legislation
