IN THE SENATE OF THE UNITED STATES

January 16, 2019

Mr. Hoeven (for himself and Mr. Wyden) introduced the following bill; which was read twice and referred to the Committee on Finance


A BILL

To amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to provide for Move America bonds and Move America credits.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. Short title.

This Act may be cited as the “Move America Act of 2019”.

SEC. 2. Findings and purpose.

(a) Findings.—Congress makes the following findings:

(1) Our Nation’s infrastructure network serves as a foundation of our economic competitiveness and national security. It is imperative that Congress maintain and revitalize the roads, bridges, ports, railways, airports, transit systems, water systems, and information networks of this country, enabling all industries to achieve the growth and productivity that make the United States strong and prosperous.

(2) Investing in transportation, water, and information infrastructure creates long-term capital assets for the Nation that will improve economic productivity.

(3) Investment in infrastructure creates jobs and spurs economic activity to put people back to work and grow the economy.

(4) The cost to maintain and improve our Nation's highways, bridges, and other critical transportation infrastructure significantly exceeds what is currently being provided by all levels of government.

(5) Investment in our Nation’s infrastructure must be multi-faceted, both by ensuring that there is a sustainable long-term funding source for infrastructure and through using innovative financing mechanisms.

(6) Areas that are underserved by modern broadband connections are disadvantaged, and ensuring that those areas are connected will enable the Nation to benefit from the fuller participation of previously underserved citizens in the national economy.

(7) Investment in infrastructure is needed throughout the Nation, and it is essential that infrastructure legislation, including but not limited to this legislation, benefit urban and rural areas, and large and small States.

(b) Purpose.—The purpose of this Act is to provide tools to finance additional transportation, water, and information infrastructure capital investments, through an approach that provides assistance for financing of infrastructure to all States, rural and urban, and large and small.
