AGC Testifies before House Transportation & Infrastructure Committee
On March 13, Al Stanley—a current contractor member of the AGC of America Board of Directors from the Alabama AGC—testified before the House Transportation and Infrastructure Subcommittee on Highways and Transit about the much-needed funding necessary to address the nation’s transportation and infrastructure needs, which especially includes the Highway Trust Fund’s revenue shortfall. Chairwoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.) called the hearing as the House begins to debate an infrastructure package and the need to reauthorize the federal aid-highway and transit programs.
Stanley pointed out that not only is funding needed to address current poor road conditions, but also to advance transportation to the next level by modernizing the system. Stanley also addressed issues that slow construction of transportation facilities, including delays caused by railroad interfaces and relocating utilities. Stanley said that now is the time to act with bipartisan support in Congress and from the Administration.
