Advocacy Publications

IRTBA provides you with an archive of industry white papers, position papers, opinion editorials news articles, and industry statistical data - all to better serve our industry advocates. 

Through additional resources from our national affiliate, the American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA), we're able to provide you with a plethora of information on the national level. 

A mobile app -- Transportation Construction Advocate™ -- was rolled out by the ARTBA to help the public and private sectors of the transportation construction industry and other interested stakeholders to communicate easily with members of Congress about the importance of infrastructure investment to the U.S. economy.  It puts all the information you need for upcoming legislative meetings at your fingertips. The app is available for download on both iPhone and Android devices. To download, type in "Trans Con Advocate" in the app search feature on your phone. 

For more information, please visit ARTBA's Government Affairs Information page.
