Washington, D.C., June 3, 2020 – The Portland Cement Association (PCA), representing America’s cement manufacturers, issued the following statement in light of the House introduction of the INVEST in America Act earlier today.
“America’s Cement Manufacturers commend House Transportation & Infrastructure Chairman Peter DeFazio for the introduction of the INVEST in America Act, a five-year surface transportation reauthorization bill. The significant increases in funding in the INVEST in America Act are critically important as our nation deals with high unemployment and economic stagnation as result of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Michael Ireland, PCA President and CEO. “PCA stands ready to work with Democrats and Republicans in the House and Senate in delivering a robust and bipartisan surface transportation reauthorization bill.”
