The U.S. Senate passed H.R. 3684, the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, by a vote of 69-30. Included in the legislation were several provisions important to NWRA, including funding for roads and bridges, but also the Recycling Enhancements to Collection and Yield through Consumer Learning and Education (RECYCLE) Act of 2021 and the DRIVE-Safe Act.
“We applaud the Senate for passing this important infrastructure legislation,” said NWRA President and CEO Darrell Smith. “It included several provisions important to us that we believe will make our industry stronger and our drivers safer. We urge the House to quickly bring this to a vote when they return to Washington, D.C., in September.”
