President Biden Delivers Historic Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal

After years of fruitless “infrastructure weeks” under Donald Trump, it only took President Biden two months to announce a bipartisan infrastructure deal. By working across the aisle, President Biden proved he’s able and committed to delivering for working Americans and rebuilding our country stronger than before. 

The bipartisan agreement is receiving praise from Republicans and Democrats alike: 

  • Senator Bill Cassidy“It’s infrastructure week!”
  • NBC News’ Geoff Bennett: “Can’t remember the last time I saw a group of Democratic and Republican senators smiling and laughing together in public.”
  • Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock“Investing in our people is an investment in our safety and our future. The work by our @POTUS & Congressional leaders to come to an agreement on a bipartisan, sustainable & resilient infrastructure framework satisfies the hope of Americans to see this country build back better.”
  • Senator Lisa Murkowski: “Not only is it comprehensive in size and scope, but it’s is fully paid for and doesn’t increase taxes. I’ll be working hard in the next few weeks to write critical pieces of this legislation, but I’m proud to have a seat at this table to ensure that Alaska’s unique needs are met.”
  • Senator Susan Collins: “Our agreement shows the American people—and the world as well—that we can work in a bipartisan way to deliver solutions that improve people’s lives and create good-paying jobs.”
  • Senator Chris Coons“$1.2 trillion in investment in infrastructure and broadband and job creation and climate resiliency. That really is a big deal.”
  • The Hill: “Business groups applaud bipartisan infrastructure deal”
  • National Journal’s Zach Cohen: “More than a fifth of the Senate — 11 Republicans and 10 Democrats — endorse the new bipartisan framework for a $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill.”
