Washington, D.C., July 29, 2019 – With the first votes scheduled tomorrow, the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee has delivered on its promise to give Americans, by August, a surface reauthorization framework that increases investment in roads, bridges, and other transportation infrastructure.
Members of the Portland Cement Association are encouraged by the dollar amounts included in the bill, but also by the recognition that how we build is just as important as what we build. We will monitor progress of the proposal’s resiliency provisions, and do our part, in congressional districts across America, to help move this language from markup to the President’s desk.
