NAM Leader Urges Congress to Get to Work on Infrastructure


Earlier this month, NAM President and CEO Jay Timmons sent a letter to all members of the U.S. House and Senate urging Congress to take effective, timely action on infrastructure revitalization. His letter laid out a specific set of priorities, Building to Win, that calls for improvements in every aspect of infrastructure from repairing and upgrading America’s bridges and tunnels to accelerating the implementation of NextGen air traffic management technology and upgrading runways and airports to world-class standards. Timmons wrote: “Insufficient infrastructure jeopardizes U.S. manufacturers’ ability to compete in the global marketplace—and it’s infrastructure that gives a competitive advantage to other countries at the expense of the American worker.” 6/16/2017
