Whitehouse Statement on Biden’s Jobs and Infrastructure Proposal

Providence, RI – U.S. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, a senior member of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, today released the following statement regarding President Biden’s Build Back Better proposal:

“American infrastructure is ready for a once-in-a-generation modernization that will make our public works more resilient and efficient. There’s much to like about President Biden’s Build Back Better proposal. I like that it’s focused on upgrading infrastructure – something we need to do more of in Rhode Island. I like that it’s big enough to create good-paying jobs and rev up the economy just as we start to emerge from the pandemic. I’m glad it touches on climate.

“This proposal is a fine starting point for Congress to begin our work, and I’m keen to do that work.”
