WASHINGTON, D.C. — Problem Solvers Caucus Co-Chairs Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) and Brian Fitzpatrick (PA-1) Thursday released the following statement regarding the bipartisan agreement on an infrastructure framework:
“We want to thank President Biden and our Republican and Democratic Senate partners for negotiating a bipartisan infrastructure framework, which is closely aligned with the Problem Solvers Caucus’ recently unveiled ‘Building Bridges’ physical infrastructure proposal. We are grateful for their partnership over the last months.
For far too long, the United States has been underinvesting in our physical infrastructure. This bipartisan infrastructure agreement will help put Americans back to work, boost productivity, and build a strong, successful 21st Century infrastructure network that delivers real benefits to every American. Investing in and rebuilding our nation’s infrastructure will grow our small businesses, create jobs, enhance our national security, protect our environment, and improve the quality of life for Americans.
The Problem Solvers Caucus stands at the ready to work with our colleagues in the Senate and House and help get a bipartisan infrastructure deal fully across the finish line. We are nearly there, and today’s deal puts us firmly on the right path forward.”
