Infrastructure on the Move
March 15, 2021 by NAPA Government Affairs

On March 4, President Biden, Vice President Harris, and Secretary of Transportation Buttigieg hosted a White House meeting with the Chairman, Ranking Member, and six other members of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure. While no decisions were announced, the meeting signaled that the White House will be ready to move forward on a surface transportation bill and infrastructure package once the American Rescue Plan is signed into law. 

Chairman Peter DeFazio (D-OR), following the meeting, stressed that it was time to move “forward on a transformational infrastructure bill that puts millions of people to work building the infrastructure of the 21st century and beyond, all while putting our country on a path toward zero pollution.” Ranking Member Sam Graves (R-MO) issued a statement saying, “First and foremost, a highway bill cannot grow into a multi-trillion dollar catch-all bill, or it will lose Republican support. Second, a transportation bill needs to be a transportation bill that primarily focuses on fundamental transportation needs, such as roads and bridges. Republicans won’t support another Green New Deal disguising itself as a transportation bill.”
