For the second time this month, DNC Chair Jaime Harrison kicked off a virtual press tour to speak directly to Americans in local media markets across the country about how the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law will create good-paying jobs, modernize our roads, bridges, and public transit, replace lead water pipes and service lines, improve access to high-speed internet, and so much more.

Harrison touted the new Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, bringing $1 trillion in funding to transportation, broadband, and utilities ($550 billion of which is new spending). Saying that the law’s provisions have wide public approval, Harrison says the most important job now is to “educate people about what is in this bill.”
“What we’re trying to do is to find relief for the American people so that they can provide more to their families,” Harrison said.
“I’m really really excited,” said Jamie Harrison, chair of the democratic national committee. “And I think the impact of Illinois is probably even gonna be greater than we see in some other states. I know that Gov. Pritzker and Democrats in the statehouse and the state senate passed a Rebuild Illinois Capital Plan, and I think, as a result of that, it is gonna match perfectly with the infrastructure law that was just passed in Washington D.C.”
