Statement from AAA President and CEO Marshall L. Doney
AAA was pleased to hear the President acknowledge the critical need for infrastructure investment during the 2020 State of the Union address — specifically calling on Congress to pass a highway reauthorization bill.
The next surface transportation reauthorization must provide immediate and long term funding solutions, while also prioritizing the rebuilding of aging infrastructure. Congress and the administration also need to take this opportunity to lay the physical and regulatory groundwork for the nation’s future transportation system that will include the widespread deployment of alternative fuel vehicles and infrastructure, connected and automated vehicles, and solutions for increased urban congestion.
AAA calls on the President to work directly with Congress to achieve these priorities. Our organization will continue to advocate for increased investment to improve safety and modernize the nation’s transportation infrastructure.
