Aguilar Applauds Passage of Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill
Rep. Pete Aguilar issued the following statement in response to the House of Representatives passing the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act:
“For decades, communities like the Inland Empire have called for meaningful federal investment in our infrastructure, and today Congress answered that call. The bill we passed today is a cornerstone of President Biden’s plan to supercharge the American economy and will create thousands of good jobs in communities like ours. From a historic investment in rail and low-emissions transit options, to expanded broadband access that will give every American access to fast and reliable internet, the economic benefits of this bill will be felt throughout San Bernardino County. This bill is a major step forward in the fight against climate change, and will help us expand public transit options, alleviate traffic and reduce smog pollution in our community. I was proud to join a strong bipartisan majority of my colleagues in sending this bill to the president’s desk, and I look forward to continuing to deliver results for Inland Empire residents.”
Aguilar serves as Vice Chair of the House Democratic Caucus and is a member of the House Appropriations Committee.
