Pelosi Statement on President Biden’s Leadership Delivering Historic Bipartisan Infrastructure Legislation
San Francisco – Speaker Nancy Pelosi released this statement following President Biden’s remarks on the successful passage of the Bipartisan Infrastructure bill, which he will soon sign into law:
“The American people sent President Biden to the White House and Democratic Majorities to Congress to deliver results that make their lives better. Last night, by sending an historic and bipartisan infrastructure package to the President’s desk, that is exactly what we have done.
“I commend the President for his visionary and tireless leadership in securing the passage of this once-in-a-century infrastructure investment on a strong bipartisan vote. This landmark legislation will create millions of good-paying American jobs and make a lasting difference in our communities: strengthening our roads and bridges, improving public transit, expanding broadband, ensuring clean drinking water for every child and more. While our crumbling infrastructure has long held us back, these monumental investments will ensure America can outcompete any nation on earth for decades to come.
“This week, Democrats have taken a momentous step toward realizing our transformative agenda. When the House returns, we will pass our Build Back Better Act to bring down the everyday costs that burden working parents – from health care to child care to paid leave to prescription drugs and more – while also securing one of the largest middle class tax cuts in history. Together, our bills will forge the greatest progress for families in a generation.”
