Tell the Trump Administration and Congress to include immediate funding for state departments of transportation (DOTs) in future COVID-19 relief legislation! Thousands of construction jobs may be on the line if they do not act soon.
Due to the unprecedented impact of the pandemic, some state DOTs are delaying and cancelling projects, as transportation revenue projections show significant declines nationwide. Without immediate federal funding to state DOTs to help ensure these projects can move forward, the threat of significant layoffs grows exponentially.
Projections continue to show decreases in state motor fuel tax and toll receipts as nationwide vehicle traffic reduction bottomed out at about 50 percent during the height of the pandemic. The Trump Administration and Congress must provide state DOTs with immediate funding to combat the threat of further project delays, cancellations and, ultimately, construction worker layoffs.
