NATSO, Fuel Retail Industry Support Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill
Added on: August 2, 2021
NATSO was joined by SIGMA and NACS on Aug. 2 in offering support for the bipartisan infrastructure bill under consideration by the U.S. Senate and asking lawmakers to oppose any amendments that would detract from the industry's ability to make forward-looking investments at a time when the transportation energy market is changing. In a letter to Senate Majority Leader Charles Schumer and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, the groups urged all Senators to support the bill, which recognizes the essential role that the associations' members must play in lowering the carbon intensity of transportation energy in the United States. The letter states that any amendments which detract from the ability to make forward-looking investments would undermine the bipartisan consensus reached on these issues and risk reversing the associations' support.
