WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, November 15, 2021, U.S. Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) released the following statement:

“In a major victory for pragmatic problem solving, Democrats and Republicans came together, working with the President, to craft and pass the greatest infrastructure investment in a century. This bipartisan bill is a huge win for New Jersey families and will help create two million jobs a year for the next decade.  I am proud to have played a key role in helping to shape and pass this once-in-a-generation legislation.

For New Jersey and our hard-working families, this bipartisan bill will help build the new Gateway Train Tunnel, fix our crumbling roads, bridges, rail, and NJ Transit, help fight climate change, invest in our ports, expand broadband access to the unconnected, and get lead out of our children’s drinking water. Now, we can finally get shovels in the ground and people to work.”
