AMP is proud to support United for Infrastructure week, Sept. 14 -21. This annual event celebrates the importance of America’s infrastructure and puts out a national challenge to invest in it. We want to recognize and celebrate the energy policy leaders who have taken risks and made strides and shaped investment in infrastructure.
In Michigan, Sally Talberg made huge strides as chairman of the Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC) and has met that challenge with bold, smart environmental decisions that have made a lasting impact on our state’s infrastructure.
The United for Infrastructure challenge: Let’s #RebuildBetter
United for Infrastructure week brings together businesses, workers, elected leaders, and everyday citizens to ensure that our nation’s infrastructure meets the needs of every American – both now and for future generations. It does this by putting out the challenge: Let’s Rebuild Better.
Program highlights include:
United for Infrastructure, a non-profit organization, champions the essential role infrastructure plays in our daily lives, economy, communities, jobs, public health, and national security. This week’s signature annual event is only one of the ways it educates the American public and policymakers about the importance of infrastructure. Throughout the year, it convenes the Presidential Candidate Infrastructure Forum, podcasts, webinars, workshops, and more. Check out the FAQs about United for Infrastructure.

These of just a few of the many MPSC achievements she spearheaded:
We can’t thank you enough, Sally, for your vision and for standing up to naysayers to always do what was right for Michigan’s energy infrastructure — and for Michiganders. It is imperative that the next generation of commissioners and leaders in Michigan continue rising to the challenge of United for Infrastructure to rebuild better. The future of Michigan energy policy is in their hands and we need leaders to make bold decisions to ensure that energy remains safe, reliable, and affordable for all Michiganders.
