Labor unions and the business community have come together to support a major economic priority — infrastructure investment. There is no better time for the president and members of Congress on both sides of the aisle to join us in developing a plan to restore and expand the transportation, water and energy networks on which the U.S. economy runs. Infrastructure investment creates jobs now and builds a foundation for economic growth for generations to come. We have seen investment in highways, power lines and communication networks pay dividends for decades. It has been decades, however, since our nation has made major infrastructure investment a priority.
