NAPA Leads Effort to Open New Markets for Asphalt in National Parks
August 3, 2020 by NAPA Government Affairs
The U.S. House of Representatives approved H.R. 1957, The Great American Outdoors Act, which would open up new markets for the asphalt pavement industry by making critical investments in roads, parking lots, and trails in the country's national park system and other public lands. The bill creates a new fund that provides up to $9.5 billion over five years for priority repairs. Funds would come from energy production on federally controlled lands and waters. NAPA led the highway construction industry's support for the legislation as it moved through the Senate and the House. "We truly would not have seen the result today but for years of your support, advocacy, and help to make it possible," said Andrew Werthmann with the Pew Charitable Trusts in an email to NAPA and other supporters. The bill now goes to the president for his promised signature. Download a NAPA summary of the bill here.
