Start with Infrastructure
I Make America is the grassroots campaign of the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) and its 1.3 million workers. It advocates for long-term investment in America’s infrastructure to support our growing economy and help equipment manufacturers compete globally.
By Starting with Infrastructure in 2019, Republicans and Democrats have an opportunity to create jobs and keep our nation strong. This includes reaching an agreement in the New Year on a long-term and sustainable funding solution for the Highway Trust Fund.
By reclaiming our infrastructure advantage we will ensure the safe and efficient movement of people and goods, connectivity between and within rural and urban America, as well as strong economic growth and job creation. Without it, our country risks losing tens of thousands of jobs and billions of dollars in economic activity if Republicans and Democrats don’t work together.
After all, polls show the majority of U.S. voters in this year’s midterm elections had fixing our nation’s infrastructure as one of their top reasons for electing their preferred candidates.
We need to keep the momentum going and tell Congress and the President to start with infrastructure in 2019, and support a comprehensive infrastructure bill that addresses persistent shortfalls in the funding of our transportation infrastructure system.
These investments will spur economic growth and help the United States reclaim it infrastructure advantage.
