Ports & Roads Transforming with Infrastructure Measure
November 15, 2021
President Biden signed into law a $1.2 trillion infrastructure deal that will repair the nation’s ports, airports, roads and bridges for years to come.
AAEI applauds the bipartisan effort that was passed on November 5, 2021, to deliver historic infrastructure improvements to the nation’s transportation networks.
AAEI President and CEO Eugene Laney issued the following statement:
“The bipartisan infrastructure measure will go a long way to ensuring that the U.S.’s transportation networks are strengthened to meet the growth in domestic commerce and international trade. We thank every member of the House and Senate who cast a vote that will lead us towards the next century’s transportation needs.”
A reliable trade infrastructure for the future ensures that domestic production will not be forced to move overseas. Investments in modernizing all modes of transport, such as waterways, ports, roads and rail, is essential to enable long term success for all American workers.
