AAPA is hosting an information briefing on provisions in both the newly-enacted Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (H.R. 3684) and the Build Back Better Act that Congress is expected to take up soon. Join AAPA on Monday, November 22, at 1:00 p.m. Eastern (10:00 a.m. Pacific) for the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act: What’s In It For You? virtual briefing. To participate, contact Derek Miller, AAPA government relations manager.
As President Biden signed H.R. 3684 into law on Monday, AAPA is honored to have taken part in the ceremony of this momentous, bipartisan bill’s enactment. Chris Connor, AAPA president and CEO, and Mario Cordero, chairman of AAPA’s Board of Directors and executive director of the Port of Long Beach, were invited by the White House and attended the event.
Chairman Cordero also testified yesterday in a hearing before the House of Representatives’ Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure about supply chain challenges. Cordero’s testimony acknowledges the dedicated federal funding for ports in the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act to make the critical investments needed for a more resilient supply chain.
