In the second episode of BRT TV, we discuss with the leaders of Bechtel, Land O’Lakes, Inc., United Airlines, and Business Roundtable why the bipartisan infrastructure framework is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to generate historic investment in our transportation, water, energy and communications infrastructure—key to accelerating economic recovery, generating sustained growth and creating well-paying jobs for hardworking Americans. Hear firsthand from America’s job creators why infrastructure investment is so urgently needed—from lagging aviation systems to lack of broadband access in rural communities—and what it will mean for American workers and families.
