At midnight on Sept. 30, 2014, the federal highway program will collapse. The Highway Trust Fund (HTF) won't be able to support any new road, bridge, or transit investment, putting at least $2.4 billion in equipment market opportunity and close to four thousand equipment dealership jobs at risk.
Tell Congress to act NOW to save the federal highway program.
