Washington – Michael Burke, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of AECOM and Chair of the Business Roundtable Infrastructure Committee, today issued the following statement in response to the Trump Administration’s infrastructure plan:
“The plan released today by the Trump Administration to renew America’s aging infrastructure is an important first step. Accelerating permitting processes and attracting private investment are critical components to fixing our roads, bridges, airports and seaports. In order to sustain and modernize our infrastructure, Congress also must find a solution to shore up federal transportation trust funds.
“Inaction is not an option. Congress should proceed with a sense of urgency during this legislative session to advance our national economy and improve the standard of living for all Americans through modern infrastructure.”
