With action on an infrastructure bill moving to Congress, the construction industry needs to tell Congress that the time for infrastructure investment is now!
Contact your U.S. representative and U.S. senators so that they understand that investing in and improving our nation’s infrastructure helps America prosper.
Congressional committees in the House and Senate will commence hearings on the president’s plan in early March.
