Statement of Andrew W. Herrmann, P.E., SECB, President of the American Society of Civil Engineers on today’s passage of the Senate Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century bill.
“The American Society of Civil Engineers applauds today’s passage in the Senate of the Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21) legislation to reauthorize the nation’s surface transportation programs.
We thank Senators Barbara Boxer and Jim Inhofe for their leadership on critical legislation that will provide two years of stable funding for our nation’s transportation network, and keep our economy moving. If we are to compete globally in the 21st century, our highways, bridges, and public transportation systems need to be maintained and modernized.
Again, we commend the Senate for their bipartisan support of this legislation, and look forward to continued progress before the March 31 deadline.”
