Biden transition team focuses on transportation issues

As President-Elect Joe Biden continues to formulate his policy transition teams, there is a focus on transportation and infrastructure issues. There is a strong indication that infrastructure policies will be an early focus of the Biden Administration. Today, ATSSA submitted our policy priorities to the transition team, focused on roadway safety infrastructure investments.

“For more than 50 years, ATSSA has focused on reducing roadway fatalities and serious injuries on roads throughout the country,” ATSSA President and CEO Stacy Tetschner stated. “We look forward to working with President-Elect Biden and his infrastructure advisors on ensuing that roadway safety is the focal point on any surface transportation proposals and legislation. As the voice of roadway safety, ATSSA and our members are the go-to resource for policy makers at all levels of government, including the incoming administration and future U.S Department of Transportation appointees.”

ATSSA’s policy priorities fall into two main categories:

Roadway Safety:

ATSSA is laser focused on working with the Administration and Congress to ensure that roadway safety is the top legislative priority for surface transportation proposals, including significant investments in the Highway Safety Improvement Program.

Transportation Funding:

ATSSA is a stalwart supporter of increased revenue for the federal Highway Trust Fund and supports increasing user fees to pay for federal-aid highway projects.

“We know that roadway safety is incredibly important to the President-Elect, as evidenced by his campaign’s proposal to increase funding levels for the Highway Safety Improvement Program and focus on how connected and automated vehicle technology – including vehicle to infrastructure communication strategies – can reduce roadway fatalities,” added ATSSA’s Vice President of Government Relations Nate Smith.
