Washington D.C., August 10, 2021 – Following agreement on Senate passage of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, Portland Cement Association (PCA) President and CEO, Mike Ireland released the following statement:
“The Portland Cement Association applauds the U.S. Senate for passing the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. This legislation will not only provide much needed investment in our nation's highways, bridges, transit, airports, and water infrastructure, but will spur economic and job growth. It also provides critical resources and incentives for industrial decarbonization, including investments in carbon removal infrastructure and financing for carbon capture projects.
Cement manufacturers across the United States appreciate the dedication of the bipartisan group of senators that developed this critical legislation through a transparent and collaborative process. As the legislation moves to the U.S. House of Representatives, we encourage members to put partisan politics aside and send this critical piece of legislation to President Biden’s desk to be signed into law.”
