Issue Background

A Strong Highway Network

Small business truckers support a strong, national highway network to improve the effiency and safety of trucking and freight movement.  

Congress should build on MAP-21's focus on improving the efficency of highway freight movement by addressing freight bottlenecks and ensuring that states dedicate resources to improving primary, secondary, and rural freight routes. 

Further, Congress should continue to reduce diversion of highway user fees away from road and bridge repairs and improvements.  Funding sources other than those from highway users should fund rail, pedestrian, bike, and transit projects.
