WASHINGTON, D.C. – Keith Hall, president and CEO of the National Association for the Self-Employed (NASE), the nation’s leading advocate and resource for the self-employed and micro-business community, today released the following statement on the House passage of the bipartisan infrastructure package.

After months of hard work, the House has passed the bipartisan infrastructure deal reached between Congress and the Administration. We applaud their bipartisan cooperation and investment in our nation’s roads, bridges, and highways – critical funding for improvements and shovel-ready projects needed in every corner of this nation. The real winners of this legislation will be the American people and millions of small businesses across the country who rely on a transportation and infrastructure system to move their American-made goods and workforce,” said Keith Hall, president and CEO of the National Association for the Self-Employed (NASE),

The $1.2 trillion package includes $550 billion in new federal investments in infrastructure over five years, representing the largest, new investment in transportation and infrastructure in nearly half a century. The package includes new funding for roads and bridges, money for transit and rail, broadband upgrade to improve the nation’s broadband infrastructure, updating airports, ports and waterways, funding for electric vehicles, improvements in power and water systems, and paves the way for increased environmental remediation.

“It is our hope that the Administration and Congress continue to work together in a bipartisan way on a variety of issues, including those important to the small business community. We look forward to working with all our policy makers on each side of the aisle to strengthen the American small business community,” concluded Hall.

The bipartisan infrastructure deal was previously passed by the U.S. Senate in August, and will now head to the president’s desk for his signature into law. Hall also penned an op-ed in The Hill imploring our elected leaders in Washington to come together to support our nation’s small business community on issues ranging from COVID relief to affordable health care and ensuring tax equity and fairness.
