ATSSA expresses support on bipartisan $2 trillion infrastructure discussion

Congressional leaders and President Trump held productive discussion on infrastructure funding

ATSSA applauds the discussion held between Congressional leaders and President Donald Trump on a $2 trillion infrastructure package.

As the leader in roadway safety infrastructure, ATSSA advocates for investment in roadway safety products that eliminate injuries and fatalities on our nation’s roadways.

The association has called for an infrastructure package that includes roadway safety funding, establishing long-term solvency for the Highway Trust Fund, and increasing funding for the Highway Safety Improvement Program in the upcoming highway reauthorization bill.

“We know that safer roads save lives. We’re encouraged by the bipartisan conversation happening on the federal-level to support infrastructure investment and improvements. Data for 2017 shows that more than 37,000 people were killed in roadway crashes – people just like you and me, trying to get home safely to their families. We call on Congress to work together on a comprehensive infrastructure package that puts Americans to work on making our nation – and roadways – safer,” said ATSSA’s Vice President of Government Relations Nate Smith.

While the meeting is a step in the right direction in making sure our nation’s infrastructure needs are met, funding mechanisms for the package were not discussed. ATSSA supports raising motor fuels user fees, which have not been raised since 1993, and exploring a national pilot program for a vehicle-miles traveled fee system.

ATSSA members from across the country will be in Washington, D.C., May 1-2, 2019, to meet with federal legislators for the annual Legislative Briefing and Fly-In to share their stories and insight on how roadway safety infrastructure saves lives.
