Urge Congress to Increase Transportation Funding
Background
Later this week, Congress is expected to pass a one-week extension of federal appropriations from the current expiration date of Friday, December 11 to Friday, December 18 to give congressional negotiators time to complete a 12-bill omnibus appropriations package for fiscal year 2021 and an additional COVID relief bill. 

Extra time to work on the omnibus appropriations package would aid congressional leaders’ plans to tie a coronavirus stimulus measure to the funding bill. A bipartisan group from the House and Senate last week released a $908 billion legislative outline that would provide state and local aid and support for small businesses, in addition to other priorities.

Issue
NAPA is urging Congress to provide “as much supplemental general fund revenue as possible” to support Federal-aid highway grants and programs as part of the fiscal year 2021 appropriations package now being negotiated. NAPA continues to also stress the need for transportation assistance in a COVID relief package, including direct aid for state departments of transportation. 

Providing these additional federal funds will ensure a predictable, equitable, and nationwide distribution of critical federal transportation infrastructure dollars — which is especially crucial this year with the severe impact of COVID-19 in every aspect of state DOT revenues and programs.

Tell your congressional delegation that Congress must pass a relief package with transportation assistance before the end of the year!
