NMMA joined a coalition of energy, business, and environmental groups led by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce to push Congress to pass an infrastructure bill by Independence Day.
In a letter to lawmakers, the coalition stated that Congress should "help enact a fiscally and environmentally responsible infrastructure package that stimulates the economy by July 4, 2021."
The letter came as the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee recently announced it would hold its first hearing next week on "Build Back Better," President Biden's broad outline for economic recovery, clean energy, and infrastructure.
"It seems each Congress and every new Administration includes infrastructure as a top priority," they wrote. "Despite broad support from diverse coalitions, however, too often they fail to act. Our nation must launch a massive investment program in transportation, energy, water and communications technologies."
