August 2019 Legislative Summary

  • The Senate Environment and Public Works Committee released a draft of its five-year $287 billion surface transportation reauthorization bill, America’s Transportation Infrastructure Act (ATIA) . There will be a strong push to move the reauthorization bill through Congress, as the current funding authorization (The FAST Act) is set to expire at the end of FY 2020. ATIA includes funding authorization language for NAFA priorities, such as road user fee pilot studies and DERA grants.
