ATSSA's 2009 Legislative Visits a Success

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)
