Latest on the National Highway Bill
by David Raymond, President and CEO, ACEC National, Washington, DC
Friday, November 20, 2015:
Today House-Senate negotiators are hammering out final dimensions of a long-term highway bill that has eluded us since 2009. ACEC is seeking at least a five-year reauthorization with funding increases in highway and transit programs well above the current baseline. Details are to be completed next week, with votes on final passage expected shortly after the Thanksgiving break. As part of ACEC’s continuing, aggressive campaign to get this bill over the finish line, we have engaged lawmakers on both sides of the aisle and mounted a full-court PR campaign that includes this full-page ad in Politico this week. --Dave
