In Addition to $46 Billion for Highway and Transit Programs under FAST Act
AGC helped secure $10 billion for state departments of transportation to help offset lost transportation revenues threatening bid lettings and project cancelations as part of the year-end COVID-relief and government funding bill enacted on December 27, 2020. AGC members generated more than 50,000 messages to their members of Congress and President Trump in support of this request, in addition to many phone calls and contacts by AGC Chapters. In addition, the legislation includes a full year’s funding for the federal-aid highway and transit program, amounting to approximately $46 billion.
