Statement by: AAA President & CEO Marshall Doney
WASHINGTON, D.C. (April 29, 2021) – “Every day, Americans depend on access to safe and modern roads, bridges, and transit systems for their daily commute. An investment in transportation is an investment in sustained economic growth and improved safety and mobility.
AAA is encouraged by the $2.25 trillion infrastructure plan. It proposes significant funding for critical surface transportation investments – long championed by AAA. President Biden’s remarks highlight the continued need for infrastructure investment – something on which most agree. But Congress needs to do the hard work and include a long-term funding solution for the Highway Trust Fund as part of any new infrastructure legislation to ensure there is adequate funding into the future. All funding methods should remain on the table.”
