A coalition of transportation construction industry and the business community this week announced the start of a new advertising campaign targeting Congressional members and touting the urgent need for investment in modern infrastructure.

The Transportation Construction Coalition and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce-led Americans for Transportation Mobility issued a joint news release that said the campaign would lean heavily on social media to generate grassroots support and to keep pressure on Congress and the Trump administration to collaborate on a permanent fix to the federal Highway Trust Fund, as well as a new transportation infrastructure package.

Meanwhile, House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chair Peter DeFazio (D-Ore.) said Tuesday during a subcommittee roundtable that he had met earlier in the Speaker Pelosi’s Office with Ways and Means Committee Chair Richard Neal (D-Mass). “We’re making one more run on the White House on funding transportation infrastructure,” DeFazio said.
