ARTBA chief blasts inaction on highway, transit bill
He urged industry executives to take advantage of the upcoming July 4 and August congressional recesses and invite their members of Congress and staffs to their offices and jobsites.
“Show them the real-world job and economic impacts, and safety benefits of strong transportation investment,” Ruane said. “Tell them to take action now on passage of a robustly funded highway and transit bill. Strong grassroots pressure is the key to creating the political will for Congress and the President to take action.”.
