Urge House to Pass Transportation Bill

Action AlertWe need your help this week in urging your legislators to take immediate action in passing the nation's next surface transportation bill. Current transportation legislation is set to expire on March 31 and Congress needs to hear that YOU want them to act NOW.

Enter your zip code at the bottom of this page to take immediate action!

WHY YOU SHOULD CARE:

PROTECT JOBS: If Congress fails to pass a transportation bill, it could mean potential funding cuts, layoffs and business closures in the transportation design and construction industries. A long-term bill provides certainty that the industry needs to plan multi-year projects and create jobs.

PREVENT WASTED TAXPAYER DOLLARS: If a federal transportation bill is not passed, some projects already under construction are at risk of shutting down – costing taxpayers millions of dollars to shut-down and remobilize.

THE CLOCK IS TICKING: The current transportation bill will expire on March 31, 2012. The House Republican leadership is building support for a five-year highway/transit bill and they hope to move it on the House floor upon their return to Washington, D.C. next week. With passage of a transportation bill in the U.S. Senate this week, the House needs to take action so the reauthorization process can continue moving forward this month.

WHAT YOU CAN DO:

SIGN ON: Join Mobility 21, the American Road & Transportation Builder’s Association and others in signing your name to the letter of support provided. This will be delivered to your member in the U.S. House of Representatives.

PICK UP THE PHONE: Don't like sending an e-mail? A simple 30 second phone call to your member can make a big difference. Call today to make your voice heard.

PASS IT ON: Encourage your friends, colleagues, neighbors and family to do the same.
