American Trucking Associations has formally launched its campaign in support of a federal infrastructure funding package.
The purpose of the campaign is to urge Washington lawmakers to work together and develop comprehensive legislation to fund infrastructure projects. ATA President Chris Spear kicked off the campaign during a teleconference with media representatives April 3.
ATA’s push includes an eight-week advertising run. The advertisements will be broadcast on the internet and television in the Washington area, as well as over social media. ATA also built a website, RoadToABetterFuture.com, to support this cause. Click here to read more.
