NAPA Statement on the State of the Union 2019

President Donald J. Trump and Congressional leaders have both cited our nation's infrastructure as an area where all sides can work together. Now is the time for those words to be put into action.


Following the President's 2019 State of the Union Address, National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) President & CEO Dr. Audrey Copeland, P.E., released the following statement:


On behalf of the asphalt pavement industry, we strongly agree with the President that Congress must produce and consider an infrastructure package that provides substantial investment for rebuilding America's highways and roads. Rebuilding our surface transportation infrastructure will improve the quality of life of every American, provide good-paying jobs in communities across the nation, and strengthen our national security and economy, as well as make our roads, highways, and bridges safer. It is time for Congress to roll up its sleeves and get to work on behalf of the American people by passing a surface transportation authorization bill that invests in infrastructure and strengthens America.
