The Outdoor Power Equipment Institute (OPEI) and more than 120 manufacturing organizations representing businesses across the country recently sent a letter urging members of Congress to pass President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Proposal.
“A robust infrastructure package is critical to the success of the outdoor power equipment industry, as manufacturers look to investment in roads, bridges, waterways, the electric grid, and telecommunications systems as key to continued post-pandemic growth,” says Kris Kiser, OPEI president.
“Our members and the equipment they manufacture are ‘powering good’ across the country – from construction sites to wildfires to installing and maintaining living landscapes that provide environmental and mental-health benefits to families and communities. The investment in this infrastructure package helps them continue this work. The industry is encouraged by the progress made in Congress thus far on this critical work, and urges members to finalize this much needed legislation in the weeks to come,” says Kiser.
