March 31, 2021

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Maria Cantwell (D-WA), the Chair of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, released the following statement on President Biden’s infrastructure investment and job creation plan:

“We must strengthen and expand America's infrastructure to remain competitive and secure in the 21st century. As we recover from the COVID crisis, there is no better way to rebuild our economy and create jobs than by making long-overdue investments in our future. From upgrading our roads and bridges and prioritizing affordable housing to building out broadband, making our supply chains more resilient, and skilling our workforce for the 21st-century economy, the American Jobs Plan is a blueprint to meet these generational challenges. I will do everything I can to partner with President Biden and my colleagues to meet this moment and deliver a stronger and fairer economic future for all Washingtonians.”
