Roadway safety is critical focal point of future transportation legislation

ATSSA Chair urges House subcommittee to include policies in infrastructure package, address long-term solvency of Highway Trust Fund

On Wednesday, Oct. 11, ATSSA Chair Debra Ricker submitted written testimony to the House Subcommittee on Highways and Transit, highlighting ATSSA's strong belief that roadway safety must remain a critical focal point of any new transportation legislation. The subcommittee held a hearing entitled “Building a 21st Century Infrastructure for America.”

Chair Ricker's testimony centered on the need to not only include roadway safety infrastructure policies and language in the future infrastructure package but also the need to address the long-term solvency of the Highway Trust Fund. The subcommittee’s Chairman Sam Graves (R-Mo.) and Ranking Member Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.) have been leaders on this issue, repeatedly urging the House Ways and Means Committee to address the Highway Trust Fund during their tax reform negotiations.

The ongoing tax reform legislation is a prime opportunity to not only fund the Administration's infrastructure proposal but also to finally address the lingering question of how we fund federal transportation projects in our country.
