Representative Mikie Sherrill Applauds Inclusion of Key Priorities in Biden’s “American Jobs Plan” Infrastructure Package
Crucial Northeast Rail Corridor Investments, Green Energy Investments, Expansion of High Speed Broadband All Highlighted in $2 Trillion Package Blueprint
Parsippany, NJ — Today, Representative Mikie Sherrill (NJ-11) released the following statement applauding the inclusion of key infrastructure priorities in President Joe Biden’s announcement of his expansive infrastructure package, the American Jobs Plan:
“For the last four years, we heard talk about infrastructure over and over again. Meanwhile, the last administration did nothing but obstruct progress on crucially needed infrastructure projects like the Gateway Tunnel.
“Yesterday, President Biden unveiled an infrastructure proposal that strikes at the heart of the problems families in my district and across the country face every single day. This plan will create jobs, increase our resilience to climate change, continue the fight against poverty, and finally upgrade our crumbling physical infrastructure.
“As we continue to grapple with the economic impacts of the pandemic, this plan will fix immediate problems while making the investments needed to take us into the future. The focus on projects of national significance in this package, like the Gateway Tunnel, America’s most critical surface infrastructure project, makes clear that the years my colleagues and I have spent advocating on this issue have worked. I applaud the Biden Administration for putting forward such a comprehensive plan that will make the needed investments and tackle America’s infrastructure crisis in a comprehensive way.”
