AEM applauds infrastructure deal that could create up to 500,000 equipment manufacturing jobs
Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) senior vice president of government and industry relations, Kip Eideberg, issued the following statement on the Senate bipartisan infrastructure deal:
"Equipment manufacturers welcome the agreement by the bipartisan group of Senators on a fiscally responsible infrastructure proposal that makes a once-in-a-generation investment in our nation's infrastructure. This bipartisan infrastructure deal will address our country's infrastructure needs while also growing the economy, enhancing our competitiveness, and creating as many as 100,000 family-sustaining equipment manufacturing jobs. We call on the full Senate to vote yes on the cloture motion to proceed to consideration so that infrastructure legislation can be approved as soon as possible."
AEM recently released a study that shows new potential infrastructure investments made by Congress over the next several years could create more than 100,000 family-sustaining equipment manufacturing jobs and nearly 500,000 U.S. manufacturing jobs overall.
