- “President Biden believes that we must invest in our country and in our people by creating good jobs, tackling the climate crisis, and sustaining equitable economic growth for decades to come. The deal will deliver progress towards those objectives for working families across the country.”
- “This plan will benefit every neighborhood across Wisconsin and we need our leaders to support us and this plan.”
- “This plan will specifically benefit Manitowoc and a lot of our infrastructure needs because the bill provides for $17.5 billion for major projects that are too large or complex for traditional funding programs and a $55 billion investment in clean drinking water — including dedicated funding to replace lead service lines and the dangerous chemical PFAS.”
- “I encourage you to contact our federal representatives to encourage them to vote “Yes” for this federal infrastructure plan.”
