Hot Topic: Federal transportation funding

The federal Highway Trust Fund has been running a deficit for many years and Congress has done nothing meaningful to address the situation. The current presidential administration has promised to put forward a $1 trillion infrastructure investment plan, but nothing of substance has been accomplished thus far. The asphalt pavement industry continues to push for a sustainable transportation funding solution. NAPA's legislative page has more HERE.

 

BIG WIN! State transportation funding 

The California Legislature in 2017 passed, and the governor signed, a historic, $52 billion transportation funding measure. Be sure to thank your elected officials who voted for the measure, SB1 by Sen. Jim Beall, D-San Jose. Also, we must continue to be engaged with our elected representatives to ensure the money is spent wisely, and support a ballot measure to prevent future administrations from diverting transportation dollars for other purposes.  A helpful publication to use in this conversation is the "Jobs in the Asphalt Industry" white paper produced by the CalAPA-supported Asphalt Alliance.
