Tonko Applauds Key Transportation Investments in Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework
Provisions spearheaded by Tonko include repairing roads & bridges, modernizing ports, and increasing broadband access
WASHINGTON, DC—Congressman Paul D. Tonko announced a number of major infrastructure provisions that he helped successfully push to include in the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act passed out of the House.
“For decades, we have put investments in critical infrastructure on the backburner, leaving communities unequipped to deal with crumbling roads and bridges, insufficient public transit, and countless other issues,” Congressman Tonko said. “At long last, these needs are being addressed. I was proud to join with my colleagues to advance the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act that will help us build a 21st century clean economy, create good jobs and establish a more competitive nation. More work lies ahead, but with this strong step and President Biden’s Build Back Better agenda, we can chart a course for a stronger, more resilient America for decades to come.”
