meet with a Capitol Hill staffer on April 23
54 ATSSA members converged on Capitol Hill on April 23 to take the message of "Toward
Zero Deaths" and " Safer Roads Save Lives" directly to their elected officials.
By day's end, 87 visits were made in 19 different House and Senate offices. The
highly successful event is held each year in Washington, D.C., and these face-to-face
meetings make a significant impact on ATSSA's ability to focus the attention of
legislators on the importance of roadway safety funding. Thanks to all our members
and staff who participated in these vitally important meetings.
"[I am] pleased to team with ATSSA and others to have report language included in
SAFETEA-LU directing the Federal Highway Administration to conduct a study and compile
research on the varying aspects of nighttime construction."
Rep. Bill Shuster (R-9-PA)
