Business Roundtable is an association of chief executive officers of leading U.S. companies working to promote a thriving economy and expanded opportunity for all Americans through sound public policy.
It is an important week for U.S. infrastructure, and America’s business leaders are reaffirming their commitment to rebuilding this critical national asset.
In an op-ed, Jacqueline Hinman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of CH2M and Chair of the Business Roundtable Infrastructure Committee, writes:
“It’s getting harder to remember the time when America’s roads, bridges and waterways set the world standard for first-rate infrastructure in the mid-20th century …
“As a nation, we possess the resources and options to turn this situation around – starting with a robust commitment to invest in our public infrastructure. …
“Let our national leaders know that it’s time to say ‘yes’ to infrastructure investment. Summer is upon us, and we’ve been stuck in the slow lane for too long.”
Last year in Road to Growth: The Case for Investing in America’s Transportation Infrastructure, the CEOs of Business Roundtable detailed the increasing costs – and negative effects – of our neglected, aging infrastructure. Click here to read the report, and see more @BizRoundtable.
