WASHINGTON, March 31, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Public Works Association (APWA) applauds President Joe Biden for introducing his American Jobs Plan. This robust 8-year, $2.25 trillion proposal is very encouraging to the more than 30,000 members of APWA who are responsible for designing, building, operating, and maintaining the nation's vast infrastructure network.
"Today, President Biden kicks off a welcome, and much needed conversation with the Congress, our citizens, and the men and women of public works," stated the Association's CEO Scott D. Grayson, CAE. "Our members are specifically interested in the proposed $620 billion investment in our nation's transportation infrastructure to include roads, bridges, transit, and electric vehicles, as well as the $45 billion to remove lead pipes, and the $66 billion offered to provide grants and low-cost loans to states, territories, tribes, and additional investment to strengthen our rural wastewater and well systems. APWA also appreciates the President's support for workforce development programs through his proposing $100 billion of investment in this important area."
APWA's Board of Directors recently approved the Association's public policy priorities for the 117th Congress, which are focused on Surface Transportation Reauthorization, Water Resiliency, and Emergency Management. "We call upon Congress and the Biden administration to come together again to support infrastructure investment, and reinvestment, that will provide, as it has for generations, a successful foundation to safeguard the essential public works services counted upon by our citizenry," added APWA President Mary Joyce Ivers. "APWA aims to be a resource to policymakers at every level by providing detailed and sound solutions to support resilient, sustainable, and technologically adaptive infrastructure for the demands and needs of our great nation."
Since its beginnings in 1894, APWA has been serving and representing the professionals working in all aspects of public works, which sets the Association apart. APWA includes personnel from the local, county, state/province, and federal agencies, as well as the private sector.
