Missouri’s infrastructure is crumbling. Our state is falling behind and putting our working families at risk. Missouri's transportation network directly impacts the quality of life for Missourians. Good roads and bridges connect us to work, school, healthcare, and recreation. Poor roads and bridges are a threat to the health and well-being of Missouri’s working families.
Senate Bill 262 is a bipartisan bill that aims to fix these problems. Despite maintaining the 7th largest transportation system in the United States, Missouri ranks 45th in transportation funding.
$825 million in high-priority transportation needs go unfunded every year.
Due to inflation and the ever-improving vehicle fuel economy, the purchasing power of Missouri’s state fuel tax has effectively dropped from 17 cents to 6 cents.
More than 6,700 miles of Missouri roadways are in poor condition.
Over 2,000 bridges in Missouri are rated as structurally deficient
By passing Senate Bill 262, we provide our state with the tools to fix these problems. And SB 262 will provide our state with good-paying UNION jobs for years and years to come. Those good-paying jobs with benefits will benefit Missouri workers and will build a stronger community and economy for all working families.
CALL your Senator and ask them to support the bipartisan Senate Bill 262 for good-paying jobs and investment in our aging infrastructure.
