Associated Equipment Distributors (AED) President and CEO Brian McGuire issued the following statement in response to the House’s passage of a six-year highway and transit reauthorization bill.
“Let me start by congratulating the new Speaker of the House for today’s strong, bipartisan vote, which is an important step, but the process isn’t finished. There’s still much work left to do. The fact remains that authorization for surface transportation programs is again set to expire in 15 days. We urge House and Senate conferees to quickly hammer out the final details of a plan to restore stability to the highway program and institute much-needed reforms. AED and its members are standing by to help move final legislation across the goal line and to the President’s desk.”
