The Transportation Construction Coalition (TCC) is a group of 32 national associations and labor unions with a direct market interest in the federal transportation programs. Created in 1996 and co-chaired by ARTBA and the Associated General Contractors of America, the TCC focuses on the federal budget and surface transportation program reauthorization debates. TCC members can be found in every congressional district and provide a vital service to their communities by helping to improve the efficiency and safety of our nation’s highway infrastructure.
ARTBA serves on the management committee of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce-led national coalition called Americans for Transportation Mobility (ATM), which brings together businesses, the labor and union sectors, transportation stakeholders, and the public to advocate a robust transportation infrastructure grid in the United States. This includes promoting ongoing and sustainable funding through policies and broad-based initiatives.
Founded in 1971, The Road Information Program (TRIP) is a nonprofit organization that researches, evaluates and distributes economic and technical data on surface transportation issues. TRIP promotes transportation policies that relieve traffic congestion, improve road and bridge conditions, improve air quality, make surface travel safer and enhance economic productivity.
The Waters Advocacy Coalition is a broad cross-section of small businesses, farmers, ranchers, builders and job creators representing most segments of the U.S. economy. Coalition members power small towns and big cities, provide the materials for and construct the nation’s roads and family homes, deliver retail goods and services, and produce food, fuel and fiber for families in the U.S. and around the world. The coalition’s members seek a new rule to provide regulatory clarity, promotes clean water and protects jobs.
The Small Business Legislative Council (SBLC) is an independent, permanent coalition of trade and professional associations who share a common concern for the future of small business. The SBLC’s purpose is twofold: to consolidate the strength and maximize the influence of business on legislative and Federal policy issues of importance to the entire small business community; and secondly, to disseminate information on the impact of public policy on small business.
The Construction Industry Safety Coalition (CISC) is made up of 30 trade associations, representing associations from all sectors of the construction industry, including commercial building, heavy industrial production, home building, road repair, specialty trade contractors and material suppliers. Workplace safety and health is a priority for all members of the coalition, and each is committed to helping create safer construction job sites for workers. The CISC has its roots in a long-standing group of construction industry trade associations who for decades have met to discuss safety and health initiatives in the construction industry. The Construction Association Safety and Health Information Network (CASHIN) has historically been involved in employee safety and health matters. CASHIN members meet periodically to discuss injury and illness trends in construction, outreach and assistance, and OSHA initiatives that impact the construction industry.
