ACTION ALERT - Senate Highway Bill - TAKE ONE MINUTE TO CONTACT SENATORS - UPDATED 22 July 2015

Yesterday Senate Majority Mitch McConnell announced a bipartisan deal for a long-term highway and transit bill.  The deal provides legislation that will include nearly $50 billion in additional funding for the Highway Trust Fund for the next several years.  This legislation is known as the "Developing a Reliable and Innovative Vision for the Economy (DRIVE) Act." .

 The vote on the DRIVE Act failed yesterday due to political wrangling.  The Democrats have asked for more time and opportunity to review the final deal and its package.  This legislation is vital to our state's and nation's economy and infrastructure.  It is vital to our construction industry. 

Please take one minute today to send your United States Senator a message asking them to act NOW before the current funding mechanism expires.

You can do so in less than sixty seconds via the link below:
