“Following today’s meeting at the White House with President Trump and Congressional Democratic leaders, we are encouraged by the spirit of bipartisanship and commitment to addressing infrastructure investment needs in the United States. Now is the time for action. Investing in America’s public transportation infrastructure benefits people in large and small communities across this country. We stand ready to support Congress and the Administration on infrastructure legislation.”
