The Highway Trust Fund (HTF) was set up in 1956 to fund the build and maintain a transportation network nationwide. Today, it is the national bank account for roads, bridges and transit that reimburses states for eligible projects. Inaction by Congress has put the Highway Trust Fund in jeopardy, and with a month left before the temporary funding fix runs out on July 31st, Congress is nowhere near to closing a deal to generate sustainable revenue for the nation’s highway, bridge, and transit systems – investments vital to the health of our recovering economy. #FixTheTrustFund is a call to action to solve this transportation problem today.

Send a Request Today to Meet with Your Members of Congress in July: Congress is home and now is the perfect time to request a meeting in the District or find a town hall event they’re hosting near you. Here are some helpful hints and how to set up a “back home” meeting. If you can’t meet in person, send your member of Congress a quick letter about the Highway Trust Fund or give their office a call and ask for the staff that handles transportation. Look up their number and get talking points here.

Hear Senator Inholfe’s take on Congress’ role in fixing the Highway Trust Fund: In this video, Senator Inholfe talks with ASCE Senior Managing Director Casey Dinges on the government’s role in infrastructure as well as what we can do to help. Here are two latest blog posts on Congress’s agenda on the bill, and policies on the table.

 

Here is a list of town hall events to tell them to fix the Trust Fund.
