WASHINGTON, D.C. - The following statement can be attributed to U.S. Chamber of Commerce Executive Vice President and Chief Policy Officer Neil Bradley:
“Today’s counteroffer from Sen. Capito and Republican colleagues represents a good faith offer and is a significant step in the right direction. Discussions between the Biden administration and Congress must continue on a bipartisan basis. Recent success at the committee level, including yesterday’s unanimously-approved surface transportation reauthorization bill and a bipartisan water bill that passed the Senate 89-2, are models for addressing our nation’s infrastructure needs. These approaches now need to be emulated by the administration and Congress to ensure infrastructure legislation is enacted this summer.
“Fundamental, durable policy is not achieved when one political party pushes through legislation on their own. We urge continued bipartisan discussions so our nation’s infrastructure receives the modernization it desperately needs.”
