“The National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) is encouraged by the announcement of a bipartisan framework to address the critical needs of our nation’s core infrastructure systems. State governments, Congress and the administration must work together to provide much needed investments as it eliminates public safety hazards, increases business productivity and job creation, and improves overall quality of life for our citizens. Last week’s announcement is a positive first step. As infrastructure is a top state budget and policy priority, states stand ready to work with Congress and the administration as the plan moves forward.”
