The National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) issued the following statement on President Biden’s announcement of the American Jobs Plan:
President Biden’s American Jobs Plan is the first step of many in moving legislation forward that will help rebuild and modernize our nation’s infrastructure. It also provides a real opportunity for Congress to work together in a bipartisan manner. Infrastructure is not an issue either party owns; we as Americans own this issue.
NECA looks forward to working with the Administration and Congress to enact a sweeping infrastructure plan that will rebuild and invest in the future of electric vehicles, modernize our nation’s electrical grid, expand broadband networks, and better our roads, bridges, waterways, existing buildings, as well as our clean water and wastewater infrastructure. We will also work to ensure that the needs and best interests of NECA contractors are represented throughout this process.
We thank the President for putting this plan together to help move the economic future of our nation in the right direction.
