WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Tom Carper (D-Del.), Chairman of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, today spoke on the Senate floor urging his colleagues to vote for the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act of 2021.
“Make no mistake, the bill before us does a whole lot of good. It’s the largest long-term investment in our nation’s infrastructure in almost a century, and the largest federal investment in history when it comes to public transit, clean energy transmission, climate resiliency, clean drinking water, and wastewater infrastructure,” Senator Carper stated.
“The American people are looking to us to strengthen our economy, and support our communities, and build for our future,” Carper continued. “Leaders in this body from across the political spectrum—we have come together in shared purpose, common cause, and a commitment to find a way forward.”
