Congress Delivers on Transportation Safety and Mobility

WILKES-BARRE, PA, (Thursday, June 28, 2012)– “Today’s Congressional compromise on federal transportation legislation is a victory for drivers concerned about safety, congestion and road quality,” said Jenny M. Robinson, Manager of Public and Government Affairs for AAA Mid-Atlantic.  “AAA commends Congress for working together to negotiate a bipartisan agreement that will help maintain and improve the nation’s transportation system, while also implementing many critical reforms that AAA and other stakeholders have promoted for years.”

“Next week, more than 35 million Americans and nearly 47,000 Wilkes-Barre area residents plan to take to our nation’s highways to travel for the Independence Day holiday, which reinforces the real-world need for a safe and efficient transportation system,” noted Robinson. “AAA urges both the House and the Senate to quickly pass the transportation authorization bill so that states can begin to implement construction projects with a greater degree of certainty and federal program reforms can begin to show dividends in terms of added safety, improved mobility and benefits to the economy.”

AAA Mid-Atlantic serves over 80,000 members in the Wilkes-Barre region and nearly four million members in, Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey, Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia, with personal insurance, financial, automotive and travel services through 53 retail branches, regional operations centers and the internet, at
