GAIN Statement in advance of SOTU

In advance of President Trump’s State of the Union Address, Craig Stevens, spokesman for the GAIN Coalition issued this statement:

“In just one year, President Trump has demonstrated his willingness to facilitate infrastructure development across several business sectors and we are hopeful that his second year in office will be even better.  Using his administrative authority to cut unnecessary red tape and provide regulatory certainty to private investors, we are beginning to realize the potential of our nation’s economic engine.  The energy sector is booming as domestic natural gas and crude oil development are up, leading the International Energy Agency to predict that the United States will be the largest producer of crude oil in the world in 2018.  And the telecom sector is investing billions of dollars to build out our nation’s 5G wireless infrastructure that will improve the connectivity of our devices, advance our smart cities and homes, and help with the deployment of autonomous vehicles.  In addition, we expect that the President will soon announce his infrastructure package that will spur much needed public investment in roads and bridges, water and sewer systems, and airports and waterways.  Taken together these capital investments will accelerate job growth and economic activity, benefiting families and communities across the country.”
