AGC Helps Lead Call for One-Year Extension of the FAST Act with Increased Funding

September 10, 2020

On Sept. 9, AGC helped lead an ad hoc coalition of 88 national trade associations and labor unions in calling on Congressional leaders to take action on three priorities: (1) a turn-key, one-year extension of the current surface transportation lawthe FAST Actwith increased investment levels; (2) emergency federal funding for state departments of transportation and public transit agencies$37 billion and $32 billion, respectively; and (3) provisions to ensure solvency of the Highway Trust Fund for the duration of the extension at a minimum. This broad coalition initiative is an essential component of AGC’s ongoing effort to demonstrate to Congress the strong, groundswell of support for action on these priorities.
