More Than 250 Chambers Urge Congress to Fund Transportation

The Winston-Salem Chamber of Commerce joined more than 250 local, regional and state chambers of commerce urging Congress to resolve the impending insolvency of the federal Highway Trust Fund, and to pass a long term federal transportation authorization bill.

Chambers of commerce know infrastructure investment is an important economic issue. Without a sustainable source of funding, the federal Highway Trust Fund will be in a deep deficit that will require major cuts, or potential halts, in highway and transit projects which would jeopardize much needed economic and job growth in our cities and regions

“Transportation is the top legislative priority of our Chamber, and we are committed to doing everything possible to ensure that we have adequate funding for road construction and maintenance to keep our economy growing,” says Gayle Anderson, president and CEO.
