INVEST in America
June 21, 2021 by NAPA Government Affairs

The House of Representatives will vote the week of June 28 on H.R. 3684, the INVEST in America Act, a five-year (FY 2022-2026), $547 billion surface transportation authorization bill approved by the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee on June 8. This legislation would: 

  • Allocate $343 billion for roads, bridges, and safety; 
  • Emphasize “fix-it-first” and add resiliency to the National Highway Performance Program, and require cost-benefit analysis for any capacity-enhancement projects; 
  • Reauthorize the Accelerated Implementation and Deployment Pavement Technologies Program (AID-PT) at $12 million annually and add a new focus area: deploying pavement technologies that reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions; 
  • Allow states to use contractual provisions that provide safety contingency funds to incorporate safety enhancements to work zones prior to or during roadway construction and maintenance activities; and 
  • Expand Buy America requirements to include “construction materials.”
