6 July 2020 | Record Level of Highway Funding Approved by U.S. House

On July 1, with just under 100 days before the expiration of the FAST Act, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the H.R. 2 surface transportation reauthorization bill as part of a larger $1.5 trillion infrastructure bill. NAPA reviewed all 172 amendments, and none directly impact the asphalt pavement industry. The bill, which provides $319 billion for highways over five years, passed the House by a vote of 233 to 188; however, it faces an uncertain future in the Senate, in recess until July 17.

NAPA sent a letter to members of Congress encouraging support for H.R. 2 and reconciliation of the legislation with the Senate infrastructure bill passed last year by the Environment and Public Works Committee. NAPA urges members to keep the pressure on Senators for a multi-year highway reauthorization bill with increased funding for highway construction. The Senate bill, S. 2302, America’s Transportation Infrastructure Act, is pending. Visit NAPA's government affairs website for bill summaries, talking points, and guidance on meeting with members of Congress. For more information, contact Jay Hansen or Ashley Jackson.
