Industry Priorities

Invest in Our Nation’s Infrastructure


NECA contractors play a crucial role in the building and maintenance of our transportation system. Our members power our nation’s buildings, hospitals, and schools; light our highways and streets; connect transit and rail switches; install complex electrical systems at airports; operate and maintain the plants that keep our water clean, and much more. Unfortunately, a systemic failure to adequately invest in our infrastructure is taking its toll on the system. We must reverse course and properly fund investments in our transportation infrastructure. Economic studies show that every $1 billion in infrastructure investment creates 28,500 direct and indirect jobs, providing our economy and the American taxpayers with a high return on investment.
