Mission Statement: We will lead a broad-based coalition to modernize and diversify North Carolina’s transportation funding structure to improve our quality of life and meet the demands of a growing state in an increasingly competitive business environment.
The importance of North Carolina’s transportation network cannot be overstated. Our roads, bridges, ports, railways, and airports provide the pathways that keep commerce moving in our state and connect North Carolina’s businesses and its people to the rest of the global economy. A robust, well-funded transportation network means more high-quality jobs for communities across our state.
In recent years, however, as storm costs have surged and as a modernized, diversified stream of revenue sources continues to elude our grasp, North Carolina’s leaders have fallen short of finding the solutions we need to fund our transportation future. The COVID-19 pandemic has only worsened our problems. Our state continues to face a transportation funding crisis – the business community must come together if we hope to secure the investments we need to keep growing good jobs for the people of North Carolina.
