TCC August Grassroots Push to fix HTF and Fund Transportation Infrastructure

As Congress begins their annual August recess, the AGC-co-chaired Transportation Construction Coalition (TCC) is asking you to reach out to your representative and senators and tell them to fix the Highway Trust Fund as part of tax reform and invest in transportation infrastructure. Congress does not return to Washington until Sept. 5 and we encourage all our members to use this time to meet with and email your members of Congress and tell them to include a permanent Highway Trust Fund fix as part of any tax reform or new infrastructure initiative.
Additionally, it is important that your elected officials hear from you that you want them to support the Senate’s transportation funding bill for fiscal year 2018, which continues funding critical transportation programs that the Trump Administration is seeking to eliminate (TIGER and Transit New Starts) as well as providing an increase of the Passenger Facility Charge (PFC) from $4.50 to $8.50. The PFC increase will allow local airports to better address their airport infrastructure needs.
The Hardhats for Highways site has additional information including a TCC background document and talking points for your visits.
