ASA Statement on White House Infrastructure Meeting
ASA supports the Biden administration and members of Congress coming together to advance a bipartisan bill to modernize America’s infrastructure.
WASHINGTON – The American Securities Association (ASA) today welcomed the Biden administration’s bipartisan and bicameral meeting with key policymakers to discuss modernizing America’s infrastructure.
“ASA supports the Biden administration and members of Congress on both sides of the aisle coming together to advance a bipartisan bill that modernizes America’s infrastructure, create good-paying jobs, and leads our country into the future,” said ASA CEO Chris Iacovella. “We look forward to continuing to be a helpful partner and ensure municipal bonds, and the ASA’s Infrastructure Modernization Agenda, are a key pillar of any legislative package.”
“Additionally, ASA welcomes introduction of the Local Infrastructure Financing Tools (LIFT) Act, sponsored by Rep. Sewell, to expand the use of municipal bond financing opportunities to help boost infrastructure investment in communities across the country.”
ASA has been at the forefront of infrastructure advocacy. Last month, ASA submitted its Infrastructure Modernization Agenda to the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee’s leadership, and welcomed President Biden’s infrastructure agenda. Last week, ASA CEO Chris Iacovella penned an op-ed for the Bond Buyer outlining how municipal bonds are key to America’s infrastructure modernization opportunity.
