Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act Passage is Bipartisan Success

Nov 06 2021

Today the Agricultural Retailers Association (ARA) applauds the U.S. House of Representatives' passage of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA). ARA President and CEO Daren Coppock released the following statement:

"We are glad the House was finally able to come together and pass this critical piece of legislation. Investment in infrastructure has long been a priority for ARA, and we will continue to work to ensure the needs of ag retailers, their farmer customers, and all of rural America are met. We are encouraged that the president will sign this immediately.

"ARA is strongly opposed to the House's Build Back Better bill. The tax increases included in this plan would not only counteract any economic recovery but also result in steep cost increases for consumers."
