IBTTA Applauds President Biden’s Continued Focus On Infrastructure

IBTTA issued a news release commenting on President Biden’s Tuesday State of the Union address. “We are pleased that improving our infrastructure and protecting the environment remain top priorities for the Biden administration. We also applaud the administration’s vision to work with Congress to unite the country, strengthen the middle class, and promote greater equity and opportunity for all Americans,” said Andrew Fremier, IBTTA President and Deputy Executive Director of the Bay Area Toll Authority and the Metropolitan Transportation Commission. Association executive director Patrick Jones pledged IBTTA’s support for efforts to maximize investments made possible by IIJA. He added that the association encourages US leaders “to seek and find long-term, sustainable sources of funding to support our nation’s vital infrastructure. Tolling and pricing,” he said, “are powerful and effective tools in the funding toolbox that will help America maintain its critical infrastructure long after the IIJA.”
