Statement on Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework from Barbara Humpton, President and CEO, Siemens USA

July 1, 2021

“The Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework reflects a growing consensus that now is the moment to invest in the next century of American growth and leadership. Our company is encouraged to see the Administration and Congress working together to advance an infrastructure vision that goes well beyond roads and bridges, including by modernizing the power grid, welcoming a new era for electric vehicles, and growing the role of passenger rail in U.S. transportation. All of these priorities will put people to work shaping a more equitable, resilient, sustainable future.

 

As the legislative process moves forward, we are hopeful that bipartisanship will prevail and that the nation will undertake bold action. By working together, we can raise the bar for American competitiveness on the global stage.”
