SACRAMENTO, Calif. — The Goods Movement Alliance issued the following statement in response to Governor Newsom's announcement to name former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa as an Infrastructure Advisor to the State of California–charged with working with local, state, and federal leaders to identify priority projects and maximize access to federal funding for infrastructure projects:
“The Goods Movement Alliance looks forward to working with former Mayor Villaraigosa in his new role as Infrastructure Advisor. Given the ongoing issues in California’s supply chain that are helping drive record-high inflation, it's vital that state leaders prioritize the most impactful projects for federal funding opportunities. Our coalition stands ready to serve as a conduit for the private sector's expertise and recommendations for modernizing California’s infrastructure to address current challenges and making our systems more resilient to future disruptions."
