ASA Statement on Senate Banking Infrastructure Hearing
Investing in infrastructure will create good-paying jobs, expand opportunity for America’s working families, and lead our country into the future.
WASHINGTON – The American Securities Association (ASA) today commended the Senate Banking Committee for holding a hearing on expanding opportunity through infrastructure investments.
“Investing in infrastructure will create good-paying jobs, expand opportunity for America’s working families, and lead our country into the future,” said ASA CEO Chris Iacovella.
“We are especially encouraged by the strong bipartisan support for reinstating advance refundings for municipal bonds, renewing a Build America Bond program, and expanding eligibility and state allowances for Private Activity Bonds at this week’s infrastructure hearings in the House and Senate. These are key pillars of ASA’s Infrastructure Modernization Agenda and we look forward to advancing them to the President’s desk.”
