House Introduces Surface Transportation Reauth & Reform Act
Published 20 Oct, 2015
Today, House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee leaders introduced the Surface Transportation Reauthorization and Reform Act of 2015 (H.R. 3763), a multi-year surface transportation bill to reauthorize and reform federal highway, transit, and highway safety programs.
Here are a few key facts about the initial proposal:
- We fought for many of the provisions in this bill: it includes several important health and safety protections for our members.
- The traveling public needs this, and it’s time for Congress to act: time is running out, and our crumbling roads and bridges can’t wait.
- It’s a step in the right direction: stay tuned, there’s more work to be done.
