Federal Funding/Stimulus

President Trump and Democratic Congressional Leadership have all made statements which indicate that infrastructure funding will be included in the next round of stimulus legislation. Republicans in the House and Senate, however, have resisted the inclusion of up to $800 Billion in infrastructure funds in the next stimulus bill which could lead to the funds being delayed until a future bill. At the moment, it still appears that renewal of the FAST Act which expires September 30, 2020, will remain a stand-alone bill that the Congress deals with later in the year. A number of National Transportation advocacy organizations are pushing a plan by the American Association of State Highway & Transportation Officials (AASHTO) to include $50 Billion of aid to State DOTs and further to temporarily suspend the State required match for funding since State tax collections have been reduced so dramatically. Please see a letter and fact sheet which provide an overview of this proposal. National Asphalt Pavement Association is also supportive of this proposal, their letter to Congressional Leadership is attached here.
