Washington, D.C. – Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued this statement on Democrats’ action on a transformative, jobs-creating infrastructure package:

“Congress must work swiftly to build on the historic Biden American Rescue Plan.  Our recovery plan must Build Back Better For The People in every zip code by creating good-paying jobs for the future.

“To that end, I have called upon the Chairs of the Committees of Jurisdiction to work with their Republican counterparts to craft a big, bold and transformational infrastructure package.

“Building our transportation system has long been bipartisan.  It is our hope that spirit will prevail as we address other critical needs in energy and broadband, education and housing, water systems and other priorities.  As we engage in these job-creating initiatives, we must discuss their impact on the federal budget, on creating economic growth and on preserving our planet.”
