Business Roundtable Commends Bipartisan Senate Leadership on Improving America’s Surface Transportation

July 30, 2019

Washington – Ahead of today’s markup of the America’s Transportation Infrastructure Act by the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, Business Roundtable released the following statement from Mike Burke, Chairman and CEO of AECOM and Chair of the Business Roundtable Infrastructure Committee:

“Business Roundtable applauds Chairman John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) and Ranking Member Tom Carper (D-Del.) of the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works for their bipartisan leadership to renew and rebuild America’s roads and highways, investments that will benefit American workers, families and communities. The America’s Transportation Infrastructure Act is an important step toward reauthorization of the FAST Act, seeking to address our nation’s critical surface transportation needs and improve the federal permitting process for infrastructure projects. Leaders of America’s largest employers look forward to working with members of Congress and the Administration to modernize America’s infrastructure by providing long-term certainty for public trust funds, unlocking and incentivizing private investment, and streamlining regulations.”
