Time to Get Down to the Nitty-Gritty

Our Nation’s highways, roads and bridges are falling apart. Modernizing our crumbling infrastructure will help America outpace our global competitors and create jobs.

Tell Congress it’s time to get down to the nitty-gritty on our transportation policy and to fight for the priorities that will put Americans back to work building a cleaner, more efficient infrastructure.

Send a letter asking your member of Congress to support the Senate version of the transportation bill as it is considered before them and ask him or her to urge Conference Committee members to do the same. 

Maintaining the major arteries of America — highways, transit, railways and ports that ensure the faster and more efficient flow of people and goods — is necessary to edge out our competitors in a global economy. We can’t compete in a 21st century global economy with a 20th century transportation system. The House’s transportation plan is unacceptable.

Urge Congress to approve the Senate transportation bill today.
