Council Backs Push for Action on Infrastructure

The Bay Area Council has joined over 300 organizations to support a campaign led by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC) to “Build by the Fourth of July,” urging Congress to enact a sweeping package by July 4, 2021 to rebuild America’s crumbling infrastructure. The coalition brings together a diverse group of transportation, policy, labor and business organizations to call for legislation that will:

  • Repair and update our crumbling infrastructure
  • Stimulate our economy and create middle-class sustaining jobs
  • Address climate change
  • Promote fiscally and environmentally responsible policies
  • Improve federal project approvals 
  • Address the digital divide
