The April 21-22 event is free for members and will be completely online making access to Capitol Hill policymakers convenient and effective. Last year’s virtual event proved popular with ATSSA members and provided a great way to interact with legislators without the need for travel. Participants drove their message to Capitol Hill and enjoyed direct interactions with members of Congress and congressional staff involved in funding and policy decisions. ATSSA’s Legislative Briefing & Virtual Fly-In equips members to present key roadway safety infrastructure industry issues directly to political leaders and this year’s issues are key for the industry. The FAST Act, or Fixing America's Surface Transportation Act, was a hot topic last year as ATSSA members advocated successfully for a one-year extension but a new deadline is looming. “With the FAST Act expiring in less than seven months, attending ATSSA’s virtual Legislative Briefing and Fly-In and making your voice loudly heard is more important than ever,” ATSSA Vice President of Engagement Nate Smith said. “Register before April 14 so we can ensure that roadway safety is a central theme of the next highway bill.” Registration is now open. The sooner you register, the sooner the Government Relations Team can schedule meetings with policymakers representing your state. Day one of this two-day event starts with a legislative briefing and tips for conveying your message. Day two focuses on virtual meetings with members of Congress and their staff. This is where participants can talk about how their companies contribute to reducing roadway fatalities and advancing our industry’s Toward Zero Deaths mission and where they can help Congress understand the importance of federal investment in roadway safety infrastructure. Register now to make your voice heard on Capitol Hill.
