Aguilar Issues Statement on Passage of the Build Back Better Act

Washington, DC—Rep. Pete Aguilar issued the following statement after the House passed the Build Back Better Act:

“Today, the House delivered on a generational investment in the American people. This bill gives a much-needed tax cut to middle-class families, lifts children out of poverty, lowers health care costs, expands child care access, protects Dreamers and members of our immigrant communities, and represents the boldest initiative to fight climate change in our country’s history. Inland Empire families and small businesses are still recovering from the pandemic, and this legislation gives them the resources they need to succeed. I was proud to help pass this landmark investment in the American people, and I urge my colleagues in the Senate to act quickly so that we can see the results in communities like San Bernardino County.”

Rep. Aguilar serves as Vice Chair of the House Democratic Caucus and is a Member of the House Appropriations Committee.
