A brief guide on talking points for NUCA's top three Summit issues: Underground Infrastructure Investment, Broadband Infrastructure Deployment, and Workforce Development.
Underground Infrastructure Investment
Serious investments in American water and wastewater infrastructure will deliver economic and public health benefits to every community. Congress should pass the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act of 2021 (H.R. 3684) this session to achieve this important goal.
Broadband Infrastructure Deployment
The pandemic demonstrated this nation needs faster and modern broadband infrastructure to sustain our economic recovery. An expanded resource base is needed to deliver faster Internet and data services to more Americans.
Skilled construction employees are becoming scarce, which will pose a challenge in building new infrastructure projects. New workers are needed this year and in the decade ahead as the construction industry faces a shortfall of 2 million employees through 2025.
