A statement from ATSSA President and CEO commends progress on INVEST in America Act

ATSSA commends the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee on moving the INVEST in America Act out of committee today. The bill, which includes historic funding levels for roadway safety infrastructure projects, moves the highway bill reauthorization process closer to the finish line before the looming Oct. 1 deadline. We look forward to working with members of Congress, in a bipartisan fashion, to ensure that the final legislative product is even more focused on saving lives on American roadways. ATSSA applauds Rep. Bruce Westerman (R-Ark.) for highlighting the need to focus the federal highway program on proven, life-saving countermeasures which will save lives and reduce serious injuries in every congressional district.

The cost of inaction on reauthorizing the highway bill is grave: women and men will lose their jobs, communities will suffer, and most tragically of all, lives will needlessly be lost in traffic crashes.

As we have for the last 50 years, ATSSA members stand ready to help enact a long-term, robustly funded, safety-focused highway bill that will save lives, grow our economy, and transform America’s transportation network.

Stacy Tetschner, CAE

President & CEO
