GCP joins more than 250 chambers urging Congress to fund transportation

Cleveland, Ohio—The Greater Cleveland Partnership (GCP) has joined more than 250 local, regional and state chambers of commerce urging Congress to resolve the impending insolvency of the federal Highway Trust Fund and to pass a long term federal transportation authorization bill.

“A sustained investment in infrastructure is vital to our economy,” said GCP President and CEO Joe Roman. “A reliable and resilient transportation network is essential to continue driving the positive momentum we’ve worked so hard for here in Northeast Ohio. We need a sustainable source of funding to grow jobs and keep the country moving.”

Without a sustainable source of funding, the federal Highway Trust Fund will be in a deep deficit that will require major cuts, or potential halts, in highway and transit projects which would jeopardize much needed economic and job growth in our cities and regions
