ATM Exec Welcomes Problem Solvers’ Infrastructure Push
Jan. 10, 2018 — Ed Mortimer, Executive Director of the Americans for Transportation Mobility (ATM) Coalition, praised ideas presented today by the bipartisan House Problem Solvers Caucus to modernize and improve America’s infrastructure.
The ATM Coalition, which is comprised of multiple stakeholder organizations in the business and labor communities, is a leader in the national dialogue promoting better U.S. infrastructure and increased transportation investment.
“Today, we join others throughout our nation who look forward to working with the White House and Congress to usher in the federal policies and change needed to rebuild America’s infrastructure,” said Mortimer.
At the press conference, the Caucus co-chairs on infrastructure, Rep. John Katko (R-NY) and Rep. Elizabeth Esty (D-CT), pointed to bipartisan policies to improve highways, roads and bridges, transit, railways, ports, airports, water and sewer systems, energy systems, the power grid, and broadband.
Solutions include modernizing existing user fees, incentivizing private investment through public-private partnerships, increasing accountability to taxpayers, streamlining and project delivery reforms, life-cycle assessments, and examining budget-scoring overhauls.
