NEMA Makes a Statement on Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act

Nov. 16, 2021 - National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) President and CEO Debra Phillips issued the following statement upon President Biden's signing of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act:

"The comprehensive package signed into law today represents a significant milestone in the transformation of U.S. infrastructure systems toward accessible, electrified transportation systems, modernized buildings and lighting, a more resilient grid, and increased efficiency of expanded manufacturing. NEMA members are integral to realizing this vision in ways that will enhance the quality of life for all Americans, grow our economy, protect the environment and serve the nation's long-term interests."

"While this legislation provides an unprecedented opportunity to bolster our nation's infrastructure, its promise will only be realized if our manufacturing, supply chain and regulatory systems are able to meet the coming demand. Our industry looks forward to working with lawmakers on policies and programs that will fortify our nation's manufacturing base, strengthen supply chain systems and streamline regulatory programs to support the creation of an electrified, connected, and sustainable future." -NEMA President and CEO Debra Phillips.
