WASHINGTON — The U.S. House of Representatives Transportation and Infrastructure Committee has launched an informational campaign titled: “Building a 21st Century Infrastructure for America,” or #building21. According to a news release issued by the committee, the key to America’s future competitiveness is making investments “in an infrastructure that is ready to take on the challenges of the 21st century.”

That’s the message Chairman Bill Shuster, R-Pa., and members delivered during the Committee’s first full hearing of the 115th Congress in late January.

“The #building21 initiative is designed to explain our vision for America’s infrastructure that promotes job creation, encourages economic development, and prepares the Nation for the breakthroughs in mobility that are around the corner,” Shuster said. Integral to the #building21 initiative is the launch of a new website, which will focus attention on policies that will build a 21st Century infrastructure.

“This isn’t simply a website,” Shuster said. “The Committee will continue to hold hearings, listening sessions, and roundtables throughout the Congress as part of our agenda to explore what system users, manufacturers, and consumers need to truly develop an infrastructure and transportation network that is second to none.”
