ACEC and Coalition Partners Urge Action on Infrastructure Legislation, Increase in Gas Tax

“Democrats and Republicans in blue, red, and purple states across the country have already taken this action, increasing their state gas taxes to finance their share of much-need infrastructure improvement.

“Infrastructure, especially our nation’s roads, bridges, and transit systems, is a shared responsibility between the states and the federal government. States are doing their part. It is time elected leaders in Washington do the same.
