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.
Recent Activities in Infrastructure
Labor unions and the business community have come together to support a major economic priority — infrastructure investment. There is no better time for the president and members of Congress on both sides of the aisle to join us in developing a plan to restore and expand the transportation, water and energy networks on which the U.S. economy runs.
A Blueprint for Renewing America's Infrastructure
In a letter to the White House, Business Roundtable says the Administration can speed infrastructure permitting by using provisions of an existing law, FAST-41.
It is an important week for U.S. infrastructure, and America’s business leaders are reaffirming their commitment to rebuilding this critical national asset.
In an op-ed, Jacqueline Hinman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of CH2M and Chair of the Business Roundtable Infrastructure Committee, writes:
We urge the House and Senate to pass, and the President to sign, this legislation as quickly as possible so we can get moving to invest in and rebuild our nation’s critical infrastructure assets.
