ATM Applauds Release of Trump Administration Infrastructure Plan
WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Americans for Transportation Mobility (ATM) Coalition issued the following statement today from Ed Mortimer, executive director of the coalition, in response to the release of the Trump administration’s infrastructure plan:
“The plan released today is an important step on the path to modernizing America’s infrastructure. For too long, infrastructure legislation has been viewed as a long shot, but today, it’s clear that the momentum is on the side of action.
We commend the administration for making this issue a priority, and we look forward to coming together with the broad swath of stakeholders in this debate to make infrastructure modernization a reality. We’re ready to work with Congress in a bipartisan fashion to advance a bill that will bring America’s infrastructure into the 21st century.”
The Americans for Transportation Mobility Coalition is a collaborative effort by business, labor, transportation stakeholders and concerned citizens to advocate for improved and increased federal investment in the nation’s aging and overburdened transportation system. The coalition believes the deterioration of the nation’s transportation system undermines the economy, jeopardizes our safety, threatens our quality of life, and harms the environment.
