ASCE 2019 President Robin A. Kemper Testifies to Congress


This week, ASCE 2019 President Robin A. Kemper, P.E., LEED AP, F.SEI, F.ASCE testified at a House Appropriations Subcommittee on Interior, Environment and Related Agencies hearing regarding Fiscal Year 2020 funding. President Kemper testified on the importance of strategic, robust, and sustained investments that must be made quickly through long-term, reliable federal funding, as well as through the utilization of financing mechanisms, if we hope to close the nation’s $2 trillion and growing funding gap and restore America’s world-class infrastructure.

In her testimony, President Kemper urged the Subcommittee to:

The projects funded by these programs have already proven to be successful; providing more funding to existing programs rather than creating new programs will reduce overhead costs and startup time while still allowing for significant and noticeable improvements across our nation’s infrastructure systems.

ASCE looks forward to continuing to work with the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Interior, Environment and Related Agencies – and all of Congress – to find ways to improve America’s infrastructure.
