Business Roundtable is an association of chief executive officers of leading U.S. companies working to promote a thriving economy and expanded opportunity for all Americans through sound public policy.
A modern physical infrastructure is a critical driver of increased investment, job creation and overall economic growth. The current state of U.S. infrastructure – from roads and bridges to air traffic control and navigable waterways – lags behind the nation’s global competitors. Business Roundtable supports policies that will increase investment in key infrastructure projects and modernize how the future transportation system is funded and managed.
