John Horsley, AASHTO Executive Director
"Transportation investment is a sure bet for rebuilding the nation's economy now and into the future. We applaud the House leadership for taking this key step and urge Congress to move with all deliberate speed to deliver a bill to President-elect Obama. State Departments of Transportation, working with local governments, are ready to deliver hundreds of thousands of jobs and long term benefits through smart investment in transportation projects. This is the time to restore hope to America and build the foundation for a better tomorrow."
The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) is the "Voice of Transportation" representing state departments of transportation in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. AASHTO is a nonprofit, nonpartisan association serving as a catalyst for excellence in transportation.
