For Immediate Release

Matthew Rose, Chairman and CEO, BNSF Railway and Member of the President's Council on Jobs and Competitiveness Backs American Jobs Act

I commend the President’s focus on infrastructure and its role in creating long-term economic sustainability and jobs now.  I hope that he and the Congress will be able to reform the current programs in ways that reassure Americans that they get a good return on their transportation dollar, and that federal policies open the door to more investment capital for transportation from all sources, including private markets.
