The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) provides our nation with the certainty and funding to improve the outdated infrastructure in every community. NSSGA calls on Congress and the Biden Administration to ensure effective implementation of the law, as written by Congress, to get projects moving that will reduce congestion; improve the flow of goods; facilitate commerce; and deliver energy and clean water that improves the lives of every American. We urge Congress and the Biden Administration to:
Provide maximum flexibility to state and local partners deploying infrastructure. Partisan mandates attached to federal infrastructure opportunities that discourage investment in new capacity projects, create more bureaucratic delays or provide new workforce hurdles should be rejected.
