NATSO joined 70 other trade organizations in urging President Trump to make federal infrastructure investment a top priority in coming months.
In a letter to President Trump, the groups said that few public sector actions can deliver the same level of short- and long-term “economic shot in the arm” as transportation infrastructure investment. Increased highway, bridge, public transportation and safety program funding will support direct job creation and retention.
“With state and local transportation budgets reeling from COVID-19-releated travel reductions, increased federal surface transportation investment is needed now more than ever,” the groups wrote. “In fact, failing to deliver an infrastructure initiative would not only be a missed opportunity, but could lead to declines in transportation improvement efforts that could be felt for years to come.”
Signatories included the U.S. Chamber of Commerce; National Retail Federation; National Association of Manufacturers; Associated General Contractors of America; American Highway Users Alliance, among many others.
