APC Building Closure – May 27

APC has been advised by PPL Electric that they plan to replace our transformer, which will happen on Friday, May 27, 2016. While this work is being performed, all commercial electricity to the APC Building will be suspended. It will therefore be necessary to close our building when the power is shut off. Please note, during the power outage our phone system will be down. If you should need immediate assistance during this closure, please email staff members directly.

We apologize for any inconvenience.

ARTBA Successful on Local Hire Issue

Earlier this week the House Transportation, Housing & Urban Development Subcommittee approved legislation that would fund the U.S. Department of Transportation in FY 2017. The measure would provide $43.3 billion for highway investment (as called for in the FAST Act) and $12.2 billion for public transportation ($200 million more than the FAST Act recommends).

The measure also includes language retaining common sense limitations on the Obama Administration’s initiative to allow state and local agencies to impose geographic and economic hiring preferences on federal-aid highway and transit contracts. As we did a year ago, ARTBA and AGC of America advocated strongly for this provision, which requires the public agency requesting the hiring preference to make certifications relating to the pool of available labor, displacement of current workers and cost increases.

APC Members Urge Congress to Fix Federal Highway Fund Deficit

Several APC members completed a recent trip to our nation’s capital as part of the ARTBA’s and Transportation Construction Coalition’s Annual Fly-In. This year’s message was to communicate with our congressional delegation that the levels of funding authorized in the newly enacted federal FAST ACT need to be honored. Additionally, the delegation was asked to sign on the “Graves-Norton” letter, which was asking the U.S. House Ways and Means Committee to consider making a permanent solution to the federal Highway Trust Fund structural revenue deficit as part of any tax reform proposal that Congress may be considering in the near future. The FAST ACT did not address this structural deficit when it was enacted last year.

Appointments were held with Congressmen Meehan, Kelly, Perry, Shuster, Dent, Barletta, Costello, Doyle and Thompson.
