“The New York Building Congress commends the Biden Administration for prioritizing infrastructure investment and dedicating federal support and funding to essential projects throughout the country,” said Carlo A. Scissura, President and CEO of the New York Building Congress. “As our nation continues to grapple with the COVID-19 pandemic, there has never been a more urgent or opportune time to pass a sweeping federal infrastructure plan to stimulate economic recovery, create jobs and build America back stronger and more equitably than before. It has been proven that infrastructure investment in times of crisis can uplift our country, and a comprehensive national infrastructure plan will allow us to fix our roads and bridges, upgrade our energy, water and broadband systems and break ground on visionary construction projects across the United States. We also urge the administration to take action on critical projects in the tri-state area, including the Gateway Program, Empire Station Complex and AirTrain LGA, to expand and strengthen our region’s infrastructure. The Building Congress looks forward to working with the Biden Administration on this transformative plan, and together, we will build a better New York and America for all.”
