Washington – Business Roundtable President & CEO Joshua Bolten today issued the following statement calling for House passage of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act:
“Americans have waited far too long for significant investment in our nation’s outdated infrastructure. Today, the House has an opportunity to change that by passing the historic Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. Business Roundtable urges swift passage to send this bill to the President’s desk.
“This legislation is vital for the economy and will drive America’s long-term prosperity and competitiveness. The bill provides urgently needed investments to restore our transportation systems and expand capacity to reduce congestion, upgrade aging water systems, bring broadband and clean energy to more communities and make our infrastructure more resilient in the face of a changing climate and cyberattacks.
“With the escalating supply chain crisis, further delay cannot be an option. The House should seize this opportunity and deliver for America.
“Business Roundtable urges Members of the House to vote Yes.”
