American Moving & Storage Association Applauds Senate Passage of Highway Funding Bill




July 30, 2015


 

ALEXANDRIA, VA – The American Moving & Storage Association represents national van lines, independent movers and industry suppliers, and serves as the home of the ProMover certification program. Scott Michael, president and CEO, comments on today’s passage of the DRIVE Act—Developing a Reliable and Innovative Vision for the Economy—by the U.S. Senate.

“The American Moving & Storage Association commends the Senate for passing a long-term spending bill that would fund badly-needed investments in our nation’s highways and bridges. We support their efforts at providing infrastructure funding for many years to come.

We also appreciate that Congress will keep highway spending going another three months past this Friday’s deadline as both chambers work toward a long-term agreement. We strongly urge Congress to pass a long-term spending bill when they return from their August recess.

Our members operate a fleet of more than 100,000 trucks, vans and other vehicles across the country. Their workplace is our nation’s roads, and they and their customers ought to have a safe, modern transportation system.”
