(NECN) - It's time to go on the record with the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce.

Chamber President and CEO Paul Guzzi joined NECN Business to weigh in on transportation funding battle on Beacon Hill and whether he thinks Fidelity President is right in saying retirement funding may be a looming crisis for Americans.

By Thursday, Mass. Senate President Therese Murray pushed transportation funding and a minimum wage hike to the chamber, but did she give any indication she'll be flexible when it comes to finding common ground with Governor Deval Patrick?

"Well, I think she set the table for what I think will be an agreement, Mike," Guzzi said. "She has come down very firmly in support of a legislative proposal with the House, but she's also increasing the pot if you will a little bit more, so I think the $600-$700 million of potential new revenues, including from the business community, in order to really do something we've talked about - one, improve transportation, not only the MBTA, but statewide. Two, do it in an affordable manner, so I think she's set the table to get to 'yes'."
