NASHTU Conference Set for 2023 – Save the Date
The 2023 NASHTU Conference will be held June 5 through 7, 2023 at the Hilton Capitol Hill Hotel in Washington D.C. Please save the dates!
The NASHTU Conference is an excellent opportunity for transportation unions to come together and strategize about how best to serve our members and deliver safe, cost-effective transportation projects for taxpayers. It also provides important access to transportation leaders and key Members of Congress. Past conferences included the congressional leaders of both Senate and House committees with jurisdiction over transportation and infrastructure and key transportation and labor officials from AASHTO, Transportation Trades Department, AFL-CIO, FHWA, Center for American Progress, and many other transportation stakeholder organizations.
NASHTU has secured a special room rate at the Hilton Capitol Hill Hotel (525 New Jersey Avenue, NW) of $299 per night (single/double occupancy). The hotel will also honor the special room rate for up to two days prior to and after the conference, subject to hotel availability. Advance reservations can be made by calling the hotel at 202/628-2100. Please be sure to mention the NASHTU Conference when booking your accommodations.
As always, if you have suggestions for speakers, panels, or interesting subjects for the conference, please let us know. We look forward to seeing you next June at the 2023 NASHTU Conference!

White House Fact Sheets Show Infrastructure Progress in 50 States
This week, the Biden Administration released updated fact sheets that show how the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law is delivering infrastructure progress in all 50 states across several infrastructure sectors.
The Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, also known as the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) was enacted by Congress and signed into law by President Biden last November. It includes $1.2 trillion for infrastructure spending across all sectors over the next five years. For transportation, the law includes a new surface transportation authorization that increases spending levels by almost $90 billion over the five-year span of the authorization.
