While Americans Wait for Federal Action on Infrastructure, Communities Are Speaking Out About Transportation Setbacks
Gallup senior scientist Frank Newport, Ph.D., wrote that “every bit of polling evidence I have reviewed shows that Americans are extremely supportive of new government infrastructure legislation.”
In fact, as you’ll see in our new video, the Americans for Transportation Mobility (ATM) Coalition is hearing from citizens, in places such as Kentucky, Michigan, Mississippi, Missouri and Pennsylvania, who are urging lawmakers to increase state and federal infrastructure investment through new legislation. ATM Executive Director Ed Mortimer also boils down why fixing and modernizing America’s infrastructure cannot wait.
Here is where America sits: In traffic on deteriorating highways. In underfunded transit systems. On bridges that need to be modernized. On worn-out collector and arterial roads that impact local economies and the national economy because they can adversely affect the safe and efficient movement of people and goods.
American businesses and communities run on infrastructure. It is the essence of the great prosperity our nation has known, but our transportation system is aged and, increasingly, in disrepair. Please join us in asking our leaders to address America’s infrastructure problems now because waiting costs all of us.
Mortimer is also the Vice President of Transportation and Infrastructure at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
