TRAA Represents Industry During Accelerating Infrastructure Summit by White House Invitation

TRAA's Executive Director, Cynthia Martineau, attended the Accelerating Infrastructure Summit last week at the invitation of the White House. The Summit focused on the $1.2 trillion Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (H.R.3684) which passed in November 2021, supplemented by the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 (H.R.5376), and represents the nation's largest-ever investment in infrastructure (rebuilding roads, bridges, airports, rail, transit lines, etc.).
Under the Infrastructure Package, Federal Highway Administration's Every Day Counts (EDC) initiative will expand its work to encompass additional transportation technologies and innovative solutions. EDC is designed to identify and deploy innovation aimed at reducing the time it takes to deliver highway projects, enhance safety, and protect the environment. New innovations are championed every two years. TRAA is proud to be a member of the EDC 6 NextGen TIM Group, having served on the workgroup since it launched in 2020.
Those on Capitol Hill view this as a once in a lifetime opportunity for our nation. While many aspects of the Infrastructure Package do not directly affect the towing industry, many of the included projects will have a positive impact on our daily lives and our businesses. Improvements to our nation's highway systems will make it easier and safer for traffic incident management responders to save lives and clear the nation's roadways. As we know, the longer responders are on the roadway, the greater the risk to themselves and the motoring public. TRAA will continue to monitor the package's progress and advocate for the best interests of the industry. 
TRAA is the industry's watchdog on Capitol Hill!
