WASHINGTON, D.C. -The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials commends Congress for extending both the nation's surface transportation and aviation programs at current funding levels.
"The six-month extension of federal highway and transit programs approved by Congress today ensures the continuation of thousands of job-creating infrastructure projects in every state," said John Horsley, AASHTO executive director. "We congratulate the House and Senate leadership on both sides of the aisle for their tireless hard work to bring about this positive result. We encourage the president to quickly sign the legislation. AASHTO is prepared to work with Congress and the Administration over the next six months to pass a robust, multiyear, surface transportation reauthorization bill."
