FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Nov. 8, 2021
Washington, D.C. – NSBA applauds the House for passing the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (H.R. 3684) which will provide much needed infrastructure funding and updates. Infrastructure improvements are critical to the continued growth and success of America’s small businesses, as is the ability of lawmakers to work together to do the business of the American people.
“This bill will help small businesses compete digitally, expand their markets and attract a greater range of potential workers,” stated NSBA President and CEO Todd McCracken. “Broad improvements to our national infrastructure are long overdue and stand to greatly help small businesses as we emerge from the pandemic and look toward growth and long-term success.”
The bill includes $550 billion in new spending which will inject money into roads, bridges, water systems, broadband, rail and transit, among other things. NSBA would like to thank, in particular, Secretary Pete Buttigieg and the Department of Transportation for meeting with NSBA leadership to discuss and highlight small-business priorities for infrastructure investment.
“This is exactly the type of purpose-driven, bipartisan legislative action our country needs,” stated NSBA 2021 Chair ML Mackey of Beacon Interactive Systems. “It is of great importance to NSBA and the continued growth and success of America’s small businesses that legislators build upon this bipartisan spirit and continue to address the many other priorities for sustaining and growing the small-business sector.”
