With the country watching last night, President Obama shone a national spotlight on the pressing issue of dangerous and deficient bridges on roads all across our country, pledging to create a program to put people back to work by prioritizing the repair of those nearly 70,000 deficient bridges.
Tell your Representative and Senators today you agree with the President — we need a solid plan to prioritize the repair of our deficient bridges before they become even more expensive to maintain. And we need transparency and accountability in how states spend federal highway dollars so we can show real results and rebuild the trust of the American public.
It’s time for Congress to get the message: No more waste, no more shortsighted decisions. Fix it first: Invest in rebuilding our aging infrastructure.
