Maloney Statement on Biden Signing the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act

November 16, 2021

WASHINGTON, DC – Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney released the following statement on November 15 after President Biden signed the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act into law:

“Today, President Biden made a once-in-a-generation investment to rebuild our nation’s roads and bridges, create millions of good-paying jobs, and make our communities more resilient. I know that there are few better ways to improve our communities and create good-paying jobs than infrastructure investments, which is why I proudly voted for this bill.

“America’s crumbling and outdated infrastructure weakens our economy, hurts families, and causes added costs and delays for American businesses bringing their goods to market. By signing this bill today, we ensured $550 billion in new federal funding for these imperative needs.

“The bipartisan infrastructure bill and the Build Back Better Act will create an average of 2 million jobs each year over the course of the decade, and I look forward to quickly advancing the President’s full legislative agenda with a vote on this important legislation in the near future.”
