Kudos to AGC Members who took action on the DRIVE Act

The Senate voted 62-36 yesterday to begin debate on the long-term highway & transit bill known as the "Drive Act." The vote now opens the bill up for debate, amendments and hopefully approval before the July 31 program expiration deadline. Thank you to all who contacted their senators asking them to support beginning debate on this bill.  Please now take a moment to thank your Senators who voted "yes" and express your disappointment to your Senators who voted "no" to move this transportation bill forward in the Senate.
