STATEMENT ON INFRASTRUCTURE AND RECONCILIATION FROM GROUP OF NINE
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, October 21, 2021, Representatives Carolyn Bourdeaux (D-GA), Ed Case (D-HI), Jim Costa (D-CA), Henry Cuellar (D-TX), Jared Golden (D- ME), Vicente Gonzalez (D-TX), Josh Gottheimer (D-NJ), Kurt Schrader (D-OR), and Filemon Vela (D-TX) released the following statement:
“We would like to reiterate two important points from our ongoing discussions with the White House and our Senate colleagues. First and foremost, it is critical that we vote on the Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill without delay. This bipartisan legislation provides a once-in-a-century investment for our roads, bridges, tunnels, public transit, clean water, broadband, climate resilience, and more — not to mention the millions of good paying labor jobs it will help create.
Second, we appreciate the commitment that the final reconciliation package brought to the House can pass the Senate. This process is important to ensuring that both Chambers share a common vision that meets the needs of our communities and our nation.”
