“Chairman Shuster is a great friend of the trucking industry and we look forward to continuing to work with him to address the funding shortfall in the highway trust fund and to advance a strong safety agenda,” said ATA President and CEO Bill Graves.
The Chairman and his recently announced leadership staff have a proven record. Funding our nation’s infrastructure and advancing highway safety is a priority for ATA. Rep. Shuster’s background and ability to work in a bipartisan manner will allow him to accomplish the many challenges in the coming Congress.
“We share Chairman Shuster's goal of putting America on a sustainable path to improving our nation's infrastructure,” added ATA Chairman Mike Card, president of Combined Transport Inc., Central Point, Ore. “It was a goal we shared with Chairman John Mica who worked tirelessly to pass the highway bill that became MAP-21.”
