Trucking Moves America Forward (TMAF), the industry-wide trucking image and education movement, applauds the U.S. Congress for passing a long-term highway funding bill. The critical legislation, which President Obama signed into law on Friday, December 4, ensures increased safety and efficiency for professional truck drivers and motorists alike.
For years, securing passage of a long-term highway bill has been a top priority for ATA and its members. That goal was met on December 4 when President Obama signed the FAST Act – a five-year bill with $281 billion in guaranteed funding for the nation’s roads, bridges and other surface transportation needs. ATA will now vigilantly monitor the bill’s implementation, because it contains a great deal of important items for trucking.
