Washington, DC – Greg Regan, president of the Transportation Trades Department, AFL-CIO (TTD), issues this statement on today’s Senate passage of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act:
“With today’s passage of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, the U.S. Senate took an important step toward making necessary and long-overdue investments in our nation’s infrastructure. The bipartisan support shows what we have long known: that transportation and infrastructure, and good jobs in these industries, are not partisan issues. The investments made by this act will reach every corner of this country and benefit every American. We applaud President Biden’s leadership in brokering this historic deal, and congratulate the bipartisan group of senators who came together to find common ground and address decades-long underinvestment in the systems that keep our economy moving.
“We look forward to working with the House to make these investments a reality, and to help achieve President Biden’s commitment to expand and modernize infrastructure and build back better.”
