ASA Applauds Reps. Moulton (D-MA) and Katko (R-NY)’s Call for Immediate Implementation of Infrastructure Investments
On Tuesday, February 15, 2022, Reps. Moutlon (D-MA) and Katko (R-NY) called on House and Senate leadership to release billions of dollars for much-needed infrastructure improvements across the country. Funding created by the historic Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) remains blocked by delays in the annual FY2022 Transportation, Housing and Urban Development appropriations process. The letter was signed by 55 members of Congress and endorsed by ASA, along with 48 organizations representing the transportation sector, safety and environmental advocates, and the business community. Under the current continuing resolution, new funding for highways, public transportation, carbon reduction programs, and other critical infrastructure investments is limited to lower, previously designated funding levels. Additionally, the Department of Transportation is blocked from implementing new programs.
