Associated Equipment Distributors (AED) has embarked on a 10-day multi-city bus tour to visit equipment dealers across the Midwest, Great Plains, Rocky Mountains and the West. The purpose of the tour is to highlight the critical need for federal infrastructure legislation.
“A new, long-term, sustainable federal infrastructure bill is critical to moving our nation forward,” said Brian P. McGuire, president and CEO at AED. “Infrastructure jobs will go a long way toward economic recovery as we hopefully begin to move past the pandemic.”
AED leadership is meeting with key equipment dealers across eight states.
“We want to hear first-hand the impact an infrastructure bill will have on our members,” said Robert Henderson, executive vice president at AED.
”We will use the data and anecdotes we collect to demonstrate this critical need to the U.S Congress as they consider legislation to replace the Fast Act, which expires on September 30.”
Concurrently, AED is engaged in an unprecedented grassroots outreach campaign to U.S. Senators. To date, 75% of AED members have generated more than 800 letters to their U.S. Senators.
