WASHINGTON, D.C. – The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) and the National Association of Wholesaler-Distributors (NAW) recently joined over 20 leading business and labor organizations to launch the Coalition for Bipartisan Infrastructure Investment.
The Coalition issued the following statement commending the bipartisan group of 22 senators and the Biden administration on reaching an agreement on a historic $1.2 trillion infrastructure framework and urges Congress to turn the framework into legislation that will be signed into law.
Infrastructure modernization is a critical component of long-term economic growth and improved quality of life for every American. Our organizations commend the bipartisan group of 22 senators and the Biden administration on finding common ground and reaching agreement on a historic $1.2 trillion infrastructure framework. Momentum is building, as seen by the endorsement of the framework from the Problem Solvers Caucus.
Now is the time to turn these promises into projects. We urge Congress to turn this framework into legislation that will be signed into law, and our organizations are committed to helping see this cross the finish line. Enacting significant infrastructure legislation, including investments in our roads, bridges, ports, airports, transit, rail, water and energy infrastructure, access to broadband, and more, is critical to our nation and will create middle-class family sustaining jobs.
Don’t let partisan differences get in the way of action – pass significant, meaningful infrastructure legislation now.
