ATSSA leads road safety coalition in opposing Gas Prices Relief Act

Group sends letters to House and Senate leaders expressing its view

ATSSA was joined today by 11 road safety organizations in submitting letters to the leadership of the House and Senate, asking them to reject the Gas Prices Relief Act proposed in both chambers of Congress.

The letter to Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell opens with the following statement.

“As the leading road safety associations and organizations in the United States, we write to strongly urge you to oppose the Gas Prices Relief Act, introduced by Sens. Kelly, Hassan, Stabenow, Cortez Masto, Warnock and Rosen. This legislation would be calamitous to federal transportation and road safety programs, shortly after the enactment of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) that provided historic federal investments in this nation’s infrastructure.”

Sens. Mark Kelly (D-Ariz.) and Maggie Hasson (D-N.H.) introduced the legislation earlier this month, with Sens. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.), Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.), Raphael Warnock (D-Ga.) and Jackie Rosen (D-Nev.) signing on as co-sponsors.

In the House, the measure was introduced by Reps. Tom O’Halleran, Sharice Davids, Kim Schrier, Josh Harder, Dan Kildee, Lou Correa, Elissa Slotkin, Sheila Cherfilus-McCormack and Joe Morelle.

The House letter was sent to Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy.

The organizations signing the letters opposing the Gas Prices Relief Act are:

  • American Traffic Safety Services Association
  • AAA
  • American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials
  • American Highway Users Alliance
  • American Public Works Association
  • American Society of Civil Engineers
  • Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance
  • FIA Foundation
  • Governors Highway Safety Association
  • Institute of Transportation Engineers
  • National Association of County Engineers
  • National Asphalt Pavement Association
