WASHINGTON, D.C. - The following statement can be attributed to U.S. Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Suzanne Clark:
“Our nation’s economic strength and long-term competitiveness depend on a robust and modern infrastructure. We applaud the White House and G21 group of senators for agreeing on a framework to invest in critical, physical infrastructure. We will continue to work with all members of Congress to get this bill passed and signed into law.”
In January, the U.S. Chamber launched the Build By the Fourth of July initiative with over 300 national and local organizations, calling for comprehensive, bipartisan infrastructure legislation that would stimulate the economy and improve the quality of life for every American. Since then, we have led and joined several coalitions with the same message, including issuing a joint statement with Business Roundtable and the National Association of Manufacturers, as well as joining No Labels, Business Roundtable and 130 other organizations in signing a statement supporting a two-party infrastructure deal.
