Chamber’s Statement in Support of Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill

 Chamber’s Statement in Support of Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill

After months of negotiations, a bipartisan infrastructure bill is moving forward in the Senate. This $1 trillion bill, which represents bold collaboration and leadership, will rebuild and revitalize our infrastructure systems that connect all of us. Our country and the people of the Commonwealth need and deserve this critical investment in our roads, bridges, and public transportation. While the Chamber supports many of the proposals included in President Biden’s “human infrastructure” plan, debate around the second package should not slow progress on this necessary investment in our physical infrastructure.  Our Chamber’s transportation policy agenda has long recognized and advocated for these investments that will benefit and grow our economy. This agenda outlines the major projects with extensive impact, including unbudgeted upgrades to our existing systems as well as the MBTA’s Red-Blue Connector, East-West Commuter Rail, and Cape Cod bridges.  The transformative power of this bill cannot and should not be underestimated. It will solidify the rebuilding of our country, ensuring that every state- including Massachusetts - can boldly step into an equitable recovery with new infrastructure expansions and repairs that give a better quality of life to every resident.  Let’s get it done.
