WASHINGTON, D.C. — American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) President & CEO Dave Bauer issued the following statement about House passage of the Moving Forward Act:
“The nation’s economic recovery post-coronavirus would receive a huge long-term boost with the passage of a robust surface transportation investment bill.
“We commend the House for taking a positive step in that direction with its July 1 approval of The Moving Forward Act.
“The last thing states need during tumultuous times is more uncertainty about their share of federal highway and public transit funding. Short-term program extensions are not the solution and would only add insult to injury.
“We urge the Senate to move forward quickly on its version of a multi-year reauthorization bill. Final bicameral action is imperative before the current FAST Act law expires Sept. 30.”
