|The BGR Energy and Transportation team is deeply engaged in the debate around energy policy and federal investment in transportation infrastructure. We possess the industry expertise, Capitol Hill experience and knowledge of government to successfully advocate our clients’ public policy goals.
Political leaders in Washington and in state capitals understand that roads, rail, mass transit, aviation and waterways are vital to commerce, both domestic and international. Millions of American jobs are at stake. Rapidly emerging energy technologies increasingly involve non-traditional energy sources. Increasing demand will require new choices for consumers as well as colliding interests between industry and regulators. We expect a constantly changing and always challenging legislative and regulatory situation in this space.
BGR’s background in energy and transportation policy and our strong relationships on Capitol Hill and in state governments have allowed us to emerge as a leading voice for stakeholders in this vital sector. In short, we can help clients achieve their goals.
Fuel taxes no longer bring in enough revenue to fund the repair and replacement of roads and bridges. High crude-oil prices strain taxpayers’ wallets and airlines’ profits. Railroads face new regulatory threats and aging seaports and inland waterways can no longer compete against Asian and Caribbean ports. At the same time, policy makers are recognizing that a modern, efficient transportation system is inextricably tied to a healthy economy and global competitiveness. It only makes sense for clients of many kinds to turn to BGR. Its experience and record of success for our energy and transportation clients has spanned years. We know how to seek and receive solutions to complex problems.
BGR represents many leading energy and transportation companies and associations before the U.S. House of Representatives, the Senate and the Executive Branch.
