Senators’ statement urging House of Representatives to pass bipartisan infrastructure bill
Today, U.S. Senators Rob Portman (R-OH), Bill Cassidy (R-LA), Susan Collins (R-ME), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) and Mitt Romney (R-UT) made the statement following, urging the House of Representatives to pass the bipartisan infrastructure bill:
“Passing the historic bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act on Monday would be a great victory for the American people. It will modernize and improve our roads, bridges, ports and broadband; increase the resilience of our electricity grid and coastal areas; and create jobs and long-term economic growth without raising taxes for ordinary Americans or increasing inflation.
“It is important to note that this bipartisan bill is a testament to what Congress can accomplish when we put partisanship aside and focus on moving the country forward. Congress has been talking about modernizing our country’s infrastructure for as long as we can remember. The bipartisan infrastructure investment and jobs law deserves the support of Republicans and House Democrats. We urge the House of Representatives to pass the bill on Monday when it comes to a vote before the existing surface transport authorization expires. “
