NSC Applauds Transportation Reauthorization Bill

INVEST in America ACT is an opportunity to save lives.

June 08, 2020

Itasca, IL – The National Safety Council applauds House lawmakers for the INVEST in America Act, the reauthorization of the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act. For too long, the United States has consistently avoided the hard choices needed to save lives on the roadways. This proposal is an opportunity for us to start making the right choices so we can save lives, because we know that all traffic deaths are preventable.

In the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee in April 2019, NSC called for the House to double down on what works, accelerate technology and embrace a culture of safety that mitigates common roadway risks and accounts for driver error and promotes safe systems. We are pleased that crafters of this legislation took our recommendations to heart. We know the problem and the solutions, and this bill moves us closer to these solutions.

The National Safety Council looks forward to continuing work with lawmakers to increase safety on our roadways.
