Maloney Praises Biden’s Vision for the Future, Policy Proposals in Joint Address

WASHINGTON, DC – Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY), Chairwoman of the Committee on Oversight and Reform, released the following statement after President Biden’s Joint Address to Congress on April 28:

“Tonight’s address made clear the President’s vision for our future – a nation of hope, resiliency, equality, and equity. A nation that keeps our people safe and healthy. A nation that believes Black Lives Matter, immigrants are welcome, and that healthcare and housing are human rights.

“Looking ahead, I’m eager to continue working with President Biden as we build back better. I have long said that infrastructure is one of the smartest investments our government can make, and the American Jobs Plan is the bold, innovative package we need to modernize New York City and the country by creating good-paying, clean-energy jobs as we work to combat climate change. The American Families Plan is a once-in-a-generation holistic approach to create an economy in which everyone can succeed and no family is left behind. By investing in education and childcare and by providing tax relief to American families, we can lift children out of poverty and provide economic security to families in New York and across the nation.

“It is long past due that we pass common-sense gun control legislation to combat the gun violence epidemic, that we take meaningful steps to combat systemic racism, that we enact real, bold, and sweeping police reform, and that we create a humane and just immigration system.

“I look forward to working with President Biden to make this vision a reality.”
