InfrastructureInfrastructure is the backbone of America’s economy. And to have the strongest, most resilient economy in the world, America must have the best infrastructure in the world. That’s why in 2019 AEM continues to lead the discussion in Washington, D.C., to promote a bipartisan, long-term, and comprehensive solution to infrastructure investment.

As part of AEM’s efforts this year, we’ve assembled a town hall discussion featuring Republican and Democrat members of Congress and U.S. business leaders, exploring the prospects for movement on a long-term, comprehensive infrastructure bill in the 116th Congress. The event is co-hosted by AEM and No Labels.

You’re invited to join the event by watching live via I Make America’s Twitter account starting at 8:15 a.m. ET, tomorrow, Feb. 8.
