With the shutdown ended, it is time for Congress to focus on the need to repair and modernize America’s aging infrastructure. To encourage our representatives in Washington to do so, the National League of Cities (NLC) is calling on local leaders all around the Nation to join that effort, which is being organized by NLC’s Brittney Kohler.
This week, NLC’s leadership took a stand by sending a letter to Congressional leaders. We urge you to join them by sending your own. The NCL has created a draft letter for you to personalize for your three Members of Congress. Considering the urgency, we recommend that you send these either via email or their online portals as soon as possible. Last year, local leaders laid the groundwork for legislation to rebuild America’s infrastructure, but we need Congress to refocus on a bipartisan infrastructure package that would provide communities in their districts with needed maintenance to existing structures and expand access to resources.
Thank you for taking the time to send a letter to your Members of Congress, and if you would like to share your letter on social media or tweet about infrastructure, remember to tag @leagueofcities! Also, please copy us on your correspondence with Congress.
