RSI Statement Supporting Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act

Washington, D.C. – Railway Supply Institute (RSI) Senior Vice President of Government and Public Affairs Nicole Brewin released the following statement supporting the recently released Senate bipartisan infrastructure legislation, the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act:

“RSI commends the bipartisan working group in the Senate for putting together a robust infrastructure bill that would provide funding for transformative investments in our nation’s rail network. Specifically, this bill would provide $66 billion in new spending for intercity rail and more than $39 billion for public transit, allowing Amtrak, freight railroads, and transit agencies around the country to rebuild core infrastructure, update and replace aging fleets, and improve safety and accessibility. RSI also supports the inclusion of provisions that would strengthen American competitiveness and supply chains, allowing the railway supply industry to continue to grow and support its customers. We look forward to continuing to work with Congress and the Administration to help make this bill’s vision a reality.”
