AEM president optimistic on highway-bill passage

By |  June 1, 2012

After attending the Transportation Construction Coalition (TCC) fly-in this week in Washington and meeting with members of Congress to urge action on the transportation bill, Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) President Dennis Slater said: “This week in Washington, I had the unique opportunity to join my fellow TCC members and hear from members of Congress and Highway & Transit Conference Committee members about the current state of the highway bill deliberations. After 1,000 days, nine extensions and a rapidly approaching June 30th deadline, I’m pleased to hear that a bipartisan group of members are working in Congress to finally get a long-term highway bill passed.”

Slater said he is optimistic Congress will be able to reconcile their differences and pass a fully funded transportation bill.
