Statement from Kathryn Wylde, President & CEO of the Partnership for New York City, on the Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act (FAST Act)

“The bipartisan vote to fund the nation’s transportation infrastructure is good news. It is only a provisional step, however, when it comes to building and maintaining the modern infrastructure that this country needs to remain a global economic power. The financing and development of public transportation and other infrastructure should be a central theme of the presidential election and 2017 should be the year when America comes up with a serious commitment to funding our multi-trillion dollar backlog in infrastructure needs.”
