Infrastructure Letter to Congress in Support of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act

Sep 20, 2021

Dear Representative,

On behalf of the CEO members of Business Roundtable, I urge your support for the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. Investing in our nation's infrastructure system through this legislation will drive long-term growth and U.S. competitiveness and generate economic gains for hardworking Americans. With reauthorization of surface transportation funding expiring at the end of September and a commitment from House Democratic Leadership for consideration and support of this historic legislation by September 27, the House should not delay in sending this bill to the President’s desk.

The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act will generate historic investments in our transportation, water, energy and communications systems. We’re grateful that the legislation includes reforms that will unleash private investment, lower project costs and accelerate project delivery. It will also promote resilience and sustainability in the face of climate change, natural disasters and cyber attacks. Finally, the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act will better connect rural and underserved communities, including the communications technology needed to succeed in the 21st century.

We appreciate the strong support on both sides of the aisle for investment in our nation’s infrastructure, and we applaud the many who have called for timely action in the House. Business Roundtable urges you to finish the job and deliver for the American people by voting for the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act next week. 


Sincerely,

Joshua Bolten

President & CEO
