Following the midterm elections on Nov. 4, the 113th Congress will reconvene to take final action on a number of legislative items that must be addressed before its adjournment. While Congress passed an extension providing funding until May 2015 for the federal transportation programs, AGC is pushing for transportation authorization and funding to be one of the priorities that will be taken up in the lame duck session.

Contact your Senators and Representative and urge them to address transportation needs. New email messages have been loaded on to the Hardhats for Highways website for you to send to your members of Congress. Please encourage your employees to send emails as well.
