Remember: Make Your Voice Heard On The Need For Infrastructure Investment

As a reminder, on a webinar on February 17 with MSCI President and CEO Bob Weidner, Ed Mortimer from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce explained that, in the U.S. Congress, lawmakers on the U.S. House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee and the U.S. Senate Environment and Public Works Committee already have started to consider what should be in federal infrastructure legislation.

If MSCI members are interested in contacting lawmakers on those committees, they can find information for Senate lawmakers here and for House lawmakers here.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce also has provided a template letter to help individuals contact lawmakers. That letter can be found here. MSCI members can watch the full webinar with Mortimer here.

As Connecting the Dots reported in February, MSCI is working to build support across North America for comprehensive infrastructure investments by U.S. and Canadian officials. MSCI’s campaign asks member company leaders and employees – and their customers, family members and neighbors – to share stories about why government leaders must invest in bridges, hospitals, schools, and other infrastructure. Individuals can join MSCI’s movement by logging on to www.build-now.org, signing up, and sharing photos of infrastructure in their towns and cities, states and provinces.

MSCI’s goal is to show the world how crumbling infrastructure impacts lives, families, jobs, communities, and the economy. If individuals notice infrastructure being built in their areas, MSCI wants to see that too. Log on to the website to show how many jobs are being generated, for example, or discuss the impact on the industrial metals sector.
