The outlook for getting a highway authorization bill passed in this Congress is cloudy. The bottom line is that we have an uphill battle and therefore a strong grassroots initiative is vital over the August recess to focus the attention of Congress on the need to get the bill done. Your Senators and representative need to hear from you.

Time is running short for Congress to take action on a multi-year highway and transit reauthorization bill.  SAFETEA-LU authorization expired on September 30, 2009 and the program has been operating under short term extensions ever since. In addition, the Highway Trust Fund is depleted and infusions of general fund revenue have been needed for it to meet its obligations. Members of Congress will be home this week for the Fourth of July recess and also in August. This is an excellent time to make them aware of the impact this lack of action by Congress is having on your state's highway construction program.
