WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Congressman Mark Pocan (WI-02) released the following statement after the House passed the Bipartisan Infrastructure bill which now heads to President Biden’s desk for his signature.
“This along with the Build Back Better Act will give the economy the jumpstart it needs and put America back to work. The Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill repairs our crumbling roads and bridges, invests in public transit and rail, expands broadband, including to the most rural areas, and secures clean water for our children by replacing lead pipes and delivering clean water to millions of families. I’m thankful the first half of President Biden’s agenda is on his desk, and I look forward to voting on the second half when the House passes a once-in-a-generation investment in childcare, extends the child tax credit, expands universal pre-k, and lowers prescription drug prices for seniors.”
