Coalition Comments to U.S. DOT Supporting Waivers to the Buy America Requirements for Construction Materials

We the below signed members of the Americans for Transportation Mobility write in support of the two Waivers to the Buy America Requirements for Construction Materials. The new requirements created by the Build America, Buy America Act (BABA) included in the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) introduce significant changes to existing Buy America requirements that require additional analysis and guidance from the Administration to implement. While these waivers will provide some flexibility for the delivery of critical infrastructure projects, we believe it is necessary for the Administration to issue another transitional waiver and provide sufficient time to spell out clear guidelines for compliance with IIJAs requirements.
