More Than 250 Chambers Urge Congress to Fund Transportation

The Neponset Valley Chamber of Commerce joined more than 250 local, regional and state chambers of commerce urging Congress to resolve the impending insolvency of the federal Highway Trust Fund, and to pass a long term federal transportation authorization bill.

Chambers of commerce know infrastructure investment is an important economic issue. Without a sustainable source of funding, the federal Highway Trust Fund will be in a deep deficit that will require major cuts, or potential halts, in highway and transit projects which would jeopardize much needed economic and job growth in our cities and regions

“We know a reliable and resilient transportation network is vital to the economy, particularly in light of the recent weather related issues we’ve experienced here in greater Boston” says Tom O’Rourke, President and CEO of the Neponset Valley Chamber of Commerce. “We need a sustainable source of funding to grow jobs and keep the country moving.”
