Transportation Reauthorization

Transportation infrastructure investment is critical to Los Angelesís long-term economic competitiveness. The looming expiration of MAP-21 and the projected deficit for the HTF is jeopardizing our national and regional economies and is leading to the continued deterioration of our nationís infrastructure. Without a sustainable source of funding, the HTFís deep deficit will persist and will require major cuts in federal highway and transit funding. Thatís why on behalf of the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce and our more than 1,650 members that collectively employ more than 650,000 people throughout the region, we are actively advocating for a well-funded, long-term, surface transportation authorization bill -- and that will ensure a 21st century transportation network.
