Transportation Funding Advocacy Campaign: Rural Roads and Transit Handout - Greater Pittsburgh Chamber of Commerce

2014 ACE: Award of Excellence

The Greater Pittsburgh Chamber of Commerce took a lead role in organizing a state-wide coalition of business, labor and other organizations to develop a common shared message to advocate for the successful passage of a comprehensive, adequate and sustainable transportation funding plan in 2013. To support the coalition’s on-the-ground legislative advocacy efforts in Harrisburg, Pa., we developed a series of transportation advocacy campaign materials that were distributed to lawmakers, members of the media, the general public and other key stakeholders during strategic outreach activities throughout 2013. Electronic versions of the materials were distributed via social media and other targeted outreach and linked via a transportation advocacy section of our website.  (See also the related sample records for the synopsis, open letter, booklet, and cost of inaction handout).

Keep Maryland Moving - Transportation Trust Fund Campaign

2007 ACE Awards: Honorable Mention

A minimum of $600 million in annual new transportation revenue is needed to stem the erosion of funding resources and to address a state backlog of more than $40 billion in transportation projects currently in the planning stages but not yet funded for construction. The governor sought to gain consensus among legislative leaders for issues such as these when calling a special session of the General Assembly in November 2007 to address his proposal. 

Leading up to the special session, the GBC launched a campaign “Keep Maryland Moving” to educate the business community and general public about the need for increasing funding to the Maryland Transportation Trust Fund. The campaign included television advertorials, print, radio, Web site, and e‐mail communication. The campaign significantly raised public awareness of the issue and resulted in an annual increase in state transportation funding of approximately $421 million in FY 2009 and almost $500 million in FY 2012. These represent the largest annual increase in new revenue sources for transportation projects in more than 15 years.
