WE NEED CONGRESS TO ENACT A FISCALLY AND ENVIRONMENTALLY RESPONSIBLE INFRASTRUCTURE PACKAGE THAT STIMULATES THE ECONOMY.

 

TAKE ACTIOn NOW

 

It seems each Congress and every new Administration includes infrastructure as a top priority.  Despite broad support from diverse coalitions, however, too often they fail to act. Our nation must launch a massive investment program in transportation, energy, water and communications technologies.  

Doing so will repair our crumbling roads, bridges and transit and the current gridlock in our major economic hubs that harm our productivity, global competitiveness and quality of life. It will propel public and private efforts to decarbonize our economy in a meaningful way and close the digital divide by expanding broadband and internet access. This effort also provides an opportunity to ensure the benefits and jobs from infrastructure investments are shared with communities that have borne disproportionate burdens in the past.

The coalition members call on all members of the 117th Congress to make a pledge to Build by the Fourth of July.

Our organizations won’t agree on every issue, but we are united in calling for enactment of comprehensive legislation before July 4, 2021 that will:

REPAIR AND UPDATE OUR CRUMBLING INFRASTRUCTURE

STIMULATE OUR ECONOMY AND CREATE MIDDLE-CLASS SUSTAINING JOBS

PROMOTE FISCALLY AND ENVIRONMENTALLY RESPONSIBLE POLICIES

ADDRESS CLIMATE CHANGE

IMPROVE FEDERAL PROJECT APPROVALS

ADDRESS THE DIGITAL DIVIDE

 

As a nation we must be able to build big things promptly to accelerate the economic recovery and build the resilient low-carbon economy of the future.  We need a durable commitment and clear strategy.

 

TAKE ACTION NOW
