How Will a Long-Term Transportation Bill Help You?
Congress has just passed another short-term, two-month extension of the Highway Trust Fund, a critical funding source for our nation’s roads, bridges and transit systems. It is time for Congress to step up and give our nation’s transportation networks the certainty they need by passing a multi-year funding bill for transit systems across the nation.
As Congress turns its attention back to this issue early this summer, Getting America To Work wants to hear from you. Tell us how a long-term transportation policy would allow you deliver a better transit system for your customers and how it would boost local businesses in your area. We want to use your stories to tell Congress that the millions of Americans who rely on public transit in cities big and small deserve transit systems that meet the demands of a growing population and economy.
We ask that you share compelling stories and data from your region that will help Congress understand the importance of using the summer months to debate and pass a long-term transportation policy that brings our transportation networks into a state of good repair.
