Your Voice in the Nation's Capital
Washington, D.C. is a complex legislative playing field that the NAPA Government Affairs team deftly navigates to ensure the asphalt pavement industry's voice is heard on Capitol Hill. We rally the entire industry — including suppliers and equipment manufacturers — to safeguard our place in the transportation construction sector.
OUR ADVOCACY GOALS ARE TO:
- Grow highway and airfield investments,
- Secure funding for asphalt highway and airfield pavement research,
- Oppose any pavement design or pavement-type selection mandates, and
- Ensure proposed agency regulations do not adversely impact industry operations.
Priorities, Tools, and Action Center
For 2019-2020, NAPA’s top legislative priority is the enactment of a multi-year surface transportation bill to replace the FAST Act, which expires on Sept. 30, 2020. NAPA is seeking a multi-year bill of at least five years with increased investments in highway construction, as well as a sustainable, predictable revenue source to fuel the Highway Trust Fund.
NAPA’s top regulatory priority is to respond to proposed regulations to encourage realistic regulations.
The advocacy tools on this page are designed to support the informed participation of the asphalt pavement industry in engaging with elected officials with common messages on the legislative priorities critically important to NAPA’s members.
