National ACE Participates in White House Signing Ceremony of the Infrastructure Investment & Jobs Act

 National ACE Participates in White House Signing Ceremony of the Infrastructure Investment & Jobs Act

Today, National ACE President and CEO, Chiling Tong, attended the signing ceremony for the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, marking a once in a generation investment into the nation’s infrastructure. The bill proves that despite political tensions, Congress and the Executive Branch can work together to deliver results and meaningful change to the American people. Importantly, this bipartisan effort has resulted in the codification of the Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA), allowing the Agency and the federal government to better serve minority-owned businesses. National ACE applauds the efforts of Congress and the Biden-Harris Administration that have resulted in this historic investment in both the American economy and infrastructure.

“It was an honor to attend the signing ceremony for this historic piece of legislation on behalf of the AAPI community and alongside those who made it possible,” National ACE President & CEO, Chiling Tong, said of her attendance at the signing ceremony. “Leaders from across the business, industry, and political spectrum played a pivotal role in the passage of this bill that will create jobs and economic opportunities for all Americans. This legislation represents a huge victory for all small businesses, though especially minority-owned businesses who will for the first time have a stronger voice within their government. National ACE applauds the efforts of the Biden-Harris Administration and Congress, and we look forward to the successful implementation of the Infrastructure Investment & Jobs Act in the coming months and years.”

The Infrastructure Investment & Jobs Act was first passed by the Senate on August 10 before passing the House on November 5 in bipartisan votes in both chambers. The bill makes historic investments in the nation’s roads, bridges, highways, airports, and ports, as well as in digital broadband and infrastructure. The bill also codifies the MBDA, providing it with the stability and resources it needs to help small businesses in minority communities grow and create jobs
