American Jobs and Growth Agenda
In this year’s State of American Business address, Tom Donohue outlined the top issues that will encompass our policy platform this year–our American Jobs and Growth Agenda. To deliver those messages, we are building focused monthly campaigns from February until July. Last month, our efforts were centered on energy, calling on the president to take five steps in the energy sector to unleash American jobs (View the ad that ran in the Wall Street Journal and Politico). This month, we turned to infrastructure, asking Congress and the administration to get smart on infrastructure and detailing the consequences of inaction (View the ad that ran in the Wall Street Journal and The Hill and a video outlining the problem). In April we’ll move our attention, appropriately, to taxes.
