The Transportation Investment Advocacy Center™ (TIAC) is a first-of-its-kind, dynamic education program and internet-based information resource designed to help private citizens, legislators, organizations and businesses successfully grow transportation infrastructure investment at the state and local levels through the legislative and ballot initiative processes.

The TIAC website has been created so transportation infrastructure investment advocates do not have to “re-invent the wheel” to mount successful campaigns.  It exists to put in one place—and promote the sharing of—strategies… sample political and communications tools… legislative and ballot initiative language… and information on where to obtain professional campaign advice, research and help.


Highway Trust Fund Jeopardy Remains. Members of Congress Need to Hear “The Job is Not Done”.

While Congress acted at the end of July to avert a shutdown of the federal highway and transit programs, the end result simply preserves existing levels of investment for another ten months .

Your members of the House and Senate are home during August. The best way to facilitate action to permanently stabilize and grow Highway Trust Fund revenues is for them to hear from you over the next month how damaging continued uncertainty and crises over federal surface transportation investment are to your business and your state’s economy.

We can help you arrange a meeting with your senators and representative. Please contact ARTBA’s Dean Franks at 202.289.4434 or with any questions or requests for assistance.
