H.R. 3763 is the Surface Transportation Reauthorization and Reform Act of 2015, which was passed by the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure Thursday, Oct. 22. This bill contains language extending the PTC implementation deadline to 2018 with an additional two-year extension beyond that date.

Members, friends and family are urged to contact their House Representatives immediately to ask them to co-sponsor and support H.R. 1763, as well as its inclusion to H.R. 3763.

“Now is the time to take action and contact your congressional representatives about co-sponsoring H.R. 1763,” said Alternate National Legislative Director Greg Hynes. “It’s in the best interest of public safety and the safety of our members.”
