Bob Chalker, CEO of the Association for Materials Protection and Performance (AMPP), issued a new statement regarding the signing of H.R. 3684, which is known best as the U.S. Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. The legislation was signed into law earlier this week by President Joe Biden.
In his statement, which was released through AMPP, Chalker said:
This bipartisan legislation makes a historic investment into infrastructure programs throughout the country and has the opportunity to fundamentally transform how we ensure asset integrity, promote sustainability, and protect the environment.
As the process of implementation begins, AMPP urges policymakers to engage industry experts and stakeholders to ensure best practices are utilized throughout the design, build, and maintenance of these critical assets. AMPP’s members nationwide look forward to being a resource in this process and helping rebuild lasting national infrastructure.
A summary of the new infrastructure legislation, along with its complete text and amendments, can be accessed via the official congress.gov page.
