Tell Your Members of Congress to Fund Highway & Transit Programs

Congress failed to pass legislation to fund the U.S. Department of Transportation for fiscal year 2017 at FAST Act levels. Instead, in December Congress passed a short-term continuing resolution providing funding at 2016 levels through April 28, 2017.

This continuing resolution severely impacts each state’s ability to put out projects for spring bid lettings, as they are only guaranteed federal funding for their highway and transit programs through April.  Congress needs to pass a fiscal year 2017 funding bill that provides monies for highway and transit programs at the level outlined in the FAST Act. This will provide states the funding certainty they need to construct their full list of highway and transit projects for 2017.

Contact your members of Congress by sending them an e-Hardhat and urge them to complete action on fiscal year 2017 legislation that funds highway and transit programs at FAST Act levels.
