Contact Your Congressional Representatives Today and Urge Them to Make Investment in Infrastructure a Top Priority!

The House and Senate have convened the first session of the 113th Congress. Now more than ever, it’s important to let Congress know that public infrastructure is a national priority and is vital to economic growth. Contact your representatives today and make public works’ voice heard! 

Last year, APWA Advocates were very successful in promoting issues important to the public works community.  In June, Congress passed a much needed federal surface transportation reauthorization, MAP-21.  In a sustained effort spanning several months, APWA Advocates urged their congressional representatives to support the bill during every step of the legislative process. With strategically timed phone calls, letters, and e-mails, APWA Advocates ensured that Congress made streamlining project delivery and investing in transportation a national priority. 

For those of you that have responded to APWA Action Alerts in the past,  thank you for your enthusiasm and commitment to this cause.  Your participation is integral to the success of APWA Advocates. For those of you that are new to APWA Advocates, this new session brings new opportunities to make your voice heard. Contact your congressional representatives today and urge them make investing in public transportation and infrastructure a top priority this session!
