Coalition Letter on the Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework

Wednesday, July 28, 2021 - 5:15pm

TO THE MEMBERS OF THE UNITED STATES CONGRESS:

          The business community has been advocating for investment and modernization of America’s infrastructure for over a decade and now is the time to act. Rebuilding America’s infrastructure will create new jobs and spur economic growth, sustain the economy for the long-term, and improve the quality of life for every American. 

          We applaud the bipartisan group of Senators – led by Senators Portman and Sinema – who worked tirelessly to achieve agreement on this much-needed infrastructure proposal. America’s productivity, global competitiveness and quality of life depend on all Members of Congress to make a durable commitment and outline a clear strategy that will invest in and modernize our crumbling roads, bridges, transit, rail, water and energy infrastructure, access to broadband, and more.  

          Enacting this bipartisan legislation will do just that, and we urge you to work with your colleagues on both sides of the aisle to see it across the finish line.

          Businesses continue to pour their heart and soul into their communities and into the United States as a whole, providing well-paying jobs that spur economic growth and improving the quality of life for those in their community. Now, we need Congress to do their part and provide the investment needed to revitalize America’s infrastructure so that businesses can continue to do their jobs efficiently and successfully.

          Now is the time for action. We are counting on you to advance meaningful infrastructure legislation to help ensure our economy remains competitive and to improve quality of life for all Americans.

Sincerely,

Alabama
