(OPEN):
THIS WEEK [MAY 14TH-21ST]--DURING THE SIXTH-ANNUAL "INFRASTRUCTURE WEEK"--LEADERS FROM BUSINESS, LABOR, AND GOVERNMENT ARE PROMOTING THE CRITICAL ROLE THAT INFRASTRUCTURE PLAYS, IN AMERICA'S ECONOMY.  KIMBERLY SLAUGHTER IS A SENIOR VICE-PRESIDENT AT "H-N-T-B CORPORATION"--WHICH IS A "FOUNDING SPONSOR" OF THE EVENT...

(SLAUGHTER):
"'INFRASTRUCTURE WEEK' BRINGS TOGETHER ORGANIZATIONS AND LEADERS WHO ARE UNITED AROUND ONE MESSAGE: THAT IT'S 'TIME TO BUILD'.  IT'S A RARE, BIPARTISAN ISSUE WHERE BUSINESS, LABOR, AND THE PUBLIC-SECTOR CAN COALESCE AROUND SOLUTIONS.  AND, THERE'S STRONG AND GROWING AGREEMENT THAT IT SHOULD BE ADDRESSED NOW.  THOSE OF US WHO CHOSE CAREERS IN THE INDUSTRY KNOW WHAT HAS TO BE DONE.  HOWEVER, THE FUNDING THAT'S NEEDED FAR OUTSTRIPS WHAT'S AVAILABLE--AT THE FEDERAL, STATE, AND LOCAL LEVELS.  OF COURSE, WE MUST FIRST REPAIR OUR OVERBURDENED ROADS, BRIDGES, AND RAILS THAT ARE SERIOUSLY DEFICIENT.  BUT, WE ALSO MUST MAKE OUR INVESTMENTS VERY STRATEGICALLY--IF WE'RE TO ACHIEVE THE GAINS THAT WE EXPECT.  INFRASTRUCTURE IS AT THE CORE OF AMERICA'S ECONOMIC VITALITY, AND GLOBAL COMPETITIVENESS.  AND, WORKING COLLABORATIVELY, WE HAVE AN UNPRECEDENTED OPPORTUNITY--TO BETTER OUR TRANSPORTATION-NETWORK, FOR ALL AMERICANS."
