Tell Congress: No More Short-term Fixes!

-------- Original Message --------
Subject: Tell Congress: No More Short-term Fixes!
From: Mantill Williams



On July 31, federal transportation funding runs dry, yet again. States and communities will be suspending highway and transportation projects if funding is not passed. Public transit, road, and bridge maintenance funds will fall short. Expanding and improving public transit would be off the table.

We need a long-term solution—not another short-term, temporary fix.

Write your Members of Congress today—EVEN IF YOU’VE ALREADY WRITTEN.

We know this is a challenging, sometimes aggravating process. But Congress is starting to get the message and will hopefully get down to the work of establishing real, long-term transportation funding. In the meantime, we can’t let them drop the ball on the July 31 deadline.

Please take action now.

Thank you,
