NAW Statement on Infrastructure Proposal
WASHINGTON, DC — The National Association of Wholesaler-Distributors (NAW) today issued the following statement on President Biden’s infrastructure proposal.
From Eric Hoplin, President and CEO:
“Investing in America’s future is critical for the wholesale distribution industry, but it can’t be done on the backs of American small businesses. Modernizing our infrastructure and making it work for 21st Century commerce would help the supply chain more efficiently move goods and materials to end users across the country. The Biden administration cannot improve the country’s infrastructure by increasing taxes on small businesses and wholesaler-distributors that have spent the past year fighting to operate safely, move products to customers, and keep their businesses alive during an unprecedented pandemic. With transportation and infrastructure being historically bipartisan issues, we urge Democrats and Republicans in Congress to work with the White House, put aside partisan agendas, and enact a long-overdue infrastructure bill to ensure that the economy continues to recover and businesses can continue to create needed jobs.”
