Slater: Congressional Action on Highway Bill Critical to Jobs

Words: Dan Kamys Slater: Congressional Action on Highway Bill Critical to Jobs

??

Association of Equipment Manufacturers is a North American-based international trade group providing business development resources to advance the off-road equipment manufacturing industry in the global marketplace. AEM President Dennis Slater recently issued the following statement regarding the highway bill:

Infrastructure investment is a critical job creator. Roads, highways and bridges aren’t funded or built a few months at a time. These critical projects require long-term planning. Extending a clean highway bill, as President Obama today called on Congress to do, provides America’s equipment manufacturers with the certainty they need to hire, contractors with the certainty they need to make capital investments in new equipment and employees, and the U.S economy with a badly needed growth engine. Failure to extend the highway bill would further endanger the already-tenuous economic recovery America’s manufacturers are working so hard to strengthen. Rebuilding and modernizing our public infrastructure is a safety, economic and competitiveness issue that Congress has a serious responsibility to address.
