For the first time, geoAMPS has earned a spot on the Inc. 5000 list, a prestigious ranking of small independent businesses that have seen immense growth over a short span of time. We were ranked as #1646 on the overall list, and this is the result of three-year sales growth of 228%. Leena Madan, our Chief Operations Officer, articulates this privilege, saying “It is our vision that really drives the company. We ask ourselves how we can improve the availability of service and resources that these industries need. Thinking forward has gotten us some reputation, and we are honored to join the list of reputable companies this year.”In addition, the list released this year has been the most competitive in the list’s history. With the average growth among these companies being well into the triple digits, we can expect the competition for the list to increase in the coming years.

Advertising billboards, for better or worse, are part of the American landscape. Commonly seen from our many miles of interstates and national highways, billboards are considered an essential marketing tool of business. Some motorists feel they provide useful information, while others regard them as eyesores or unnecessary distractions from the nation’s natural beauty.
As usage and popularity of billboards began to escalate in the 1950s, the federal government took initial steps toward regulation. Signed into law by President Dwight Eisenhower, the Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1956, commonly known as the “Bonus Program,” was an incentive for states to establish control of ODA within 660 feet of the right of way along interstates. States that did so received an additional one half of one percent of their interstate construction costs.

The Fixing America’s Surface Transportation (FAST) Act, passed by Congress in December 2015, authorizes $281 billion in federal funds for highway, transit and highway safety programs over five years. Combined with state and local matching dollars, the nation now has a substantial sum for much needed transportation improvements.
FAST Act is a fully paid-for reauthorization of federal highway, transit, highway safety, motor carrier safety, hazardous materials and passenger rail programs.
It’s no secret that over the last few years the alternative energy industry has faced challenges. From new and developing technologies, special interest groups and government feuding, there have been tense moments during which the future of the industry seemed uncertain. This past week, though, another tally was added to the win column of the industry's scorecard as the Investment Tax Credit (ITC) and the Production Tax Credit (PTC) were both extended as part of the $1.8 trillion package sent to President Obama's desk for signature.
