Wisconsin Democrats Applaud President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Package

Madison, Wis. — Today, President Biden announced that the White House and a bipartisan coalition of U.S. Senators have reached an agreement on an infrastructure bill. The Wisconsin Democrats applaud President Biden and Democrats in Congress for advocating for working families across the country and state of Wisconsin.

Following this historic agreement, Democratic Party of Wisconsin Rapid Response Director Julia Hamelburg released the following statement:

“President Biden came into office with the promise of working across the aisle to better the lives of American families—and he’s delivering on that promise. This is the largest investment in American infrastructure in a century, the largest investment in public transit in American history, and the largest investment in clean drinking water and waste management in American history. 

“Every neighborhood in Wisconsin will see the benefits of this plan, from expanded broadband access to investments in the physical infrastructure that keeps our cities and towns moving. We need federal support to build on Gov. Evers’s record investments in broadband and infrastructure and the nearly half a billion dollars in transportation funding in the governor’s first budget. President Biden, Gov. Evers, and Wisconsin Democrats in Congress continue to prove how good leadership can better our country and state.”
