Following President Biden’s signing the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, MoveOn Executive Director Rahna Epting issued the following statement:
“Today, President Biden took a major step forward to ensure America Builds Back Better by signing into law one of the most significant investments in infrastructure since the Eisenhower administration.
“The Infrastructure Act will rebuild and replace crumbling roads, bridges, and lead pipes. It will help create jobs, rebalance the economy, and advance a clean energy future. And once paired with the Build Back Better Act, it will accomplish the truly historic and transformational change that people voted for in overwhelming numbers last year.
“While historic, the Infrastructure Act cannot be the last word. It must be the beginning, not the end of Congress’s work to help this nation truly build back better. The American people cannot afford to wait any longer for the rest of the investments in jobs, care, climate, and immigration. The time for discussion is over. It is time for action. It is time for President Biden and House Democrats to deliver on their promise and vote this week to pass the Build Back Better Act.”
