ARTBA issues statement on House passage of infrastructure bill

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.”
