Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century


On June 29, 2012, the House of Representatives and Senate passed a new transportation authorization, Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21). This new authorization funded federal transportation policy through September 2014 and nearly doubled the Highway Safety Improvement Program (HSIP). In Fiscal Year 2013, the HSIP was funded at $2.39 billion, and in Fiscal Year 2014, it was funded at $2.41 billion. MAP-21 was a tremendous success for the roadway safety industry, especially in an era of program consolidation, streamlining and very strict fiscal constraints.


MAP-21 was intended for reauthorization in 2014. However, through a series of extensions and funding patches, Congress has yet to fully reauthorize the bill. ATSSA is working hard on Capitol Hill to promote the passage of a comprehensive, long-term transportation bill by spring of 2015.
