Urge Congress to Take Action on Infrastructure
House Transportation and infrastructure Committee Chairman Bill Shuster (R-Pa.) released a Republican “discussion draft” for addressing the nation’s infrastructure needs and, in particular, fixing the long term health of the Highway Trust Fund. Some of the ideas have come from existing proposals from the administration’s infrastructure plan as well as members of Congress from both parties. Many of the plan’s elements have long-been supported by AGC. To help build support for the Shuster plan, please contact your Representative and ask them to support Chairman Shuster’s effort and act on an infrastructure bill.
Shuster said the intent of the proposal is to reignite the infrastructure conversation with the hope that infrastructure legislation will be released in the next Congress. Shuster is retiring from Congress at the end of this year. A summary of the plan’s details can be found here.
