(WASHINGTON) – American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) President & CEO Pete Ruane issued the following statement:
““It’s encouraging Senate Democrats and the President appear to have a similar legislative appetite for investing in transportation infrastructure to help grow the economy. But talk is easy.
“Addressing the nation’s critical transportation needs in a meaningful way will require real, recurring, dedicated revenue streams that are complemented by private investment.
“For that reason, transportation revenue and tax reform should be an integral component of the comprehensive tax reform package being developed by the administration and Congress.
“President Trump’s leadership is key to making that happen.”
Since 1902, ARTBA has been the “consensus voice” of the U.S. transportation design and construction industry before Congress, the White House, federal agencies, news media and the general public.
