WASHINGTON — Dave Snyder, vice president of policy, research, and international at the Property Casualty Insurers Association of America (PCI) issued the following statement in response to the release of President Trump’s Legislative Outline for Rebuilding Infrastructure in America.
“PCI is encouraged with the beginning of what we hope will be a serious conversation about the nation’s infrastructure challenges.
“Upgrading roadway design, addressing congestion, and generally improving the condition of our infrastructure could help reduce motor vehicle crashes, deaths, and injuries.
“Assisting communities with mitigation efforts, such as elevating homes at risk of flooding, improving stormwater management systems, and strengthening buildings also are critical for communities to prepare for, and recover from extreme weather events.
“PCI hopes this dialogue develops into meaningful outcomes that will improve the nation’s infrastructure and save lives, as well as money.”
