NEMA Statement on Senate Infrastructure Legislation

National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) President and CEO Kevin J. Cosgriff released a statement on the Senate Infrastructure Legislation.

“NEMA Members support policies that enable forward-looking technologies and projects that help America meet its 21st Century electrical and other infrastructure needs. The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act under consideration by the Senate contains a wide variety of provisions that will upgrade America’s energy and connected transportation infrastructure,” Cosgriff said.

“While we believe additional provisions related to the building sector are needed, enacting the Bill and implementing the law quickly will expand the economy and provide employment prospects to rewarding careers. Importantly, the nation can do this in ways that protect the environment and contribute to improved quality of life for all Americans. We are pleased with the Senate’s progress towards passing this bill and look forward to assisting the Administration and States in bringing its benefits to life.”
