NSBA Applauds Bipartisan Infrastructure FrameworkJune 25, 2021
NSBA was pleased to see President Biden standing with lawmakers from both sides of the aisle to announce a bipartisan framework to move the ball forward on a broad infrastructure bill. Infrastructure improvements are critical to the continued growth and success of America’s small businesses, and NSBA calls on all lawmakers to ensure the final bill includes opportunities for small businesses, bolsters their ability to compete globally, and avoids creating new or inadvertent burdens on the recovering small business economy.
Below is a statement from NSBA President and CEO Todd McCracken.
“Having a fully-functioning, modern infrastructure is critical to America’s small businesses, and this bipartisan legislation stands to make major improvements—something that hasn’t been done in more than 35 years.
“Infrastructure improvements hold untold opportunities for small businesses, both in access to customers and services, but also in terms of helping to make those improvements through the federal contracting process.
“It is important to underscore this framework as a bipartisan win—one of NSBA’s top priorities is political reform and closing the partisan gap—and while there are still many details to iron-out, the good-faith negotiations should serve as an example of how policy can and should be made.”
