Washington, DC — Today, Jim Doyle, President of Business Forward, issued a statement in response to the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal:
“On Wednesday, Senators from across the aisle voted to move forward with the largest infrastructure bill our country has seen in a century. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal calls for $550 billion in new spending, including historic investments in American transportation, broadband, and the electric grid. The agreement demonstrates that Congress is prepared to create millions of good-paying jobs, revitalize aging infrastructure systems, and build an economy that is resilient to the changing climate.”
