Washington, DC, April 1, 2021 – Nicole Brewin, Senior Vice President of Government and Public Affairs for Railway Supply Institute (RSI), released the following statement following President Biden’s announcement of the ‘American Jobs Plan’ yesterday:
“The release of President Biden’s infrastructure plan and the Administration’s commitment to investment in passenger and freight rail and to strengthen American manufacturing is a great first step. These proposed investments provide an opportunity to narrow inequities in transportation, improve the resilience of our infrastructure, and lower the nation’s carbon footprint—all while supporting thousands of new jobs in the railway supply industry.
“We look forward to working with Congress and the Administration in the coming months to develop and pass legislation that provides the investments needed to strengthen our passenger and freight rail networks and the critical supply chains that make their operations possible.”
