Testing of asphalt emissions mandated by Congress
The 2003 Consolidated Appropriations Resolution,
passed last month by Congress and enacted into Public Law 108-7 by President Bush, includes a provision added at the eleventh hour which requires the Federal Highway Administration to compare the performance of modified and unmodified asphalt binders.
The law requires FHWA to also measure the emissions during application and report the findings as part of an ongoing study on asphalt pavement currently under way at the Turner-Fairbanks Highway Research Center. For a copy of the provision, contact NAPA’s Vice President for Government Affairs, Jay Hansen, at the NAPA office or via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
