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.
Federal funding for state & local transportation projects in jeopardy.
Over the past 10 years, federal funding through the Highway Trust Fund has provided, on average, 52 percent of all annual road and bridge capital investments made by the state transportation departments. Without additional revenues to the trust fund by September 30, 2014, THERE WILL BE NO FEDERAL FUNDING FOR ANY NEW HIGHWAY, BRIDGE OR TRANSIT PROJECTS IN ANY STATE DURING 2015. Call your U.S. congressman and senators and tell them why federal funds are needed in your state.
