Plover, WI (November 7, 2021) – Ellen Voie, the President and CEO of the Women In Trucking Association (WIT), released the following statement regarding the passage of the bipartisan infrastructure bill that passed the House of Representatives:
“Women In Trucking is ecstatic and grateful for the bipartisan effort that culminated in the passage of an infrastructure bill that will rebuild America’s highways, roads, and bridges. In addition to helping truckers get goods to markets, the bill contains specific provisions to address the shortage of truckers facing the nation.
As America struggles with logistic issues and a shortage of truck drivers nationwide, the bill will bring more women behind the wheel and protect those who have made truck driving a career. We want to thank Sen. Tammy Baldwin and Rep. Mike Gallagher and others for their leadership on this issue and look forward to this legislation becoming law.”
Women In Trucking Association is the nation’s leading advocate of women in the trucking and transportation industry.
