The president’s desire to be the “builder-in-chief,” coupled with the Republican-dominated Congress’ quest for the first major tax reform bill since 1986, offer a synergistic moment for a permanent revenue solution for the Highway Trust Fund. But, it won’t just happen. We need to turn up the heat on Congress and the administration.
That’s why ARTBA’s Federal Issues Program (FIP) and the Transportation Construction Coalition (TCC) Fly-In, scheduled May 16-18 at the Hyatt Regency on Capitol Hill, is so important. This is your chance to communicate directly with your members of Congress on the need for action on this and other key transportation policy and regulatory matters.
Check out rest of the FIP/TCC Fly-In program schedule on the following pages and then register today! Consider bringing several people from your firm or agency with you. A strong industry grassroots presence during this once-in-a-generation opportunity to boost infrastructure investment is critical to getting the job done right!
