Statement by the Association of Global Automakers on America's Transportation Infrastructure Act

“America’s Transportation Infrastructure Act makes important investments in upgrading and modernizing our nation’s infrastructure for the 21st Century. Specifically, Global Automakers applauds the grant program established by the bill, which will help build out refueling and recharging infrastructure for plug-in battery electric and fuel cell electric vehicles along alternative fuel corridors.  This program complements the significant investment that automakers are making in these technologies, while also supporting industry goals of greater fleet electrification and reducing vehicle emissions. We thank Chairman Barrasso, Ranking Member Carper, and the Members of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee for advancing this important legislation, and we look forward to continuing to work with both the Senate and the House as they move towards a reauthorization of the FAST Act.”
