American Road & Transportation Builders Association President & CEO Dave Bauer released the following statement about the April 30 meeting on infrastructure between President Donald Trump, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer:
“Common ground has always been there for the taking when it comes to making major new infrastructure investments. Today’s meeting was a positive and constructive step forward in what should be a bipartisan process.
“The foundational pillar of any long-term infrastructure package is a sustainable, growing, user-fee based revenue stream for the Highway Trust Fund. It remains the linchpin for any final and meaningful deal between the Trump administration and Congress.”
Established in 1902, and with more than 8,000 public and private sector members, the Washington, D.C.-based ARTBA advocates for strong investment in transportation infrastructure to meet the public and business community demand for safe and efficient travel.
