Advocacy

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; and
  • Oppose any pavement design or pavement-type selection mandates.

Priorities, Tools, and Action Center

IIJA/BIL Implementation 

The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), also called the Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill (BIL), was signed into law on November 15, 2021, bringing to fruition many of NAPA’s priorities, as laid out in our Build Back Better with Asphalt action plan. IIJA/BIL will provide increased, sustained funding for road projects through 2026, but it is a complex bill. NAPA provides the resources you need to understand the legislation and its impact on the asphalt pavement industry. This page will be updated as we learn more and implementation progresses.

Regulatory Priorities

NAPA’s top regulatory priority is to respond to proposed regulations to encourage realistic regulations.
