Washington, DC — Today, Jim Doyle, President of Business Forward, issued a statement in response to the passage of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act:
“This week, President Biden brought Americans together to pass historic infrastructure investments that will create millions of jobs and make us more economically competitive. By closing the digital divide and expanding our electric vehicle infrastructure, America is truly “building back better.” To appreciate the President’s achievement in political terms, consider that President Trump promised investments like these for four years, but never delivered. President Biden got it done his first year.”
