The Highway Trust Fund (HTF) faces an unprecedented crisis. Current estimates indicate by mid-summer 2014 the HTF will be unable to support any new highway infrastructure investment. The long-term situation is equally bleak, according to the Congressional Budget Office (CBO), by FY 2015 the HTF will be unable to maintain any obligated highway or transit spending, jeopardizing nearly $51 billion in annual investment - the "Year Zero" scenario.
Take action and urge your lawmakers to address the looming shortfalls facing the HTF and a solid future for national infrastructure investment. Congress must move quickly to protect our equipment dealers, distributors, and service providers from a devastating loss of resources.
