Statement on passage of the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act by Siemens USA President and CEO Barbara Humpton
BY: Barbara Humpton, President and CEO, Siemens USA
“We applaud the passage of the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act and its broad vision for infrastructure. This bill goes well beyond roads and bridges to provide essential investment in rail, electric vehicle infrastructure, the grid, and America’s workforce.
This is a historic moment in America – one that sets the stage for decarbonizing the economy, boosting U.S. manufacturing, creating jobs, and increasing equity.
As we look to the work ahead, let’s continue accelerating the adoption of emerging technologies to further U.S. innovation. Let’s inspire a new generation of workers in industry and infrastructure. And let’s reinvent our supply chain to support our economy and national preparedness.
This bill provides us with a strong foundation to shape the future we want.”
