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.
Transportation infrastructure is the backbone of a modern, competitive and productive economy.
Once the envy of the world, America’s highways, bridges, railways, airports, transit systems and waterways are deteriorating due to inevitable wear and tear. Stretched beyond capacity by the demands of today’s global economy and a growing population, America’s transportation infrastructure provides an opportunity for policymakers to reinvest in a critical driver of our entire economy.
Federal and state governments are responsible for committing consistent and reliable funding streams to support key infrastructure projects and to enact policies that better enable the private sector to invest in significant infrastructure initiatives.
