WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, Problem Solvers Caucus Co-Chairs Brian Fitzpatrick (PA-1) and Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) released the following statement regarding the passage of the $1.2 trillion bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act in the Senate:
"We applaud Senators on both sides of the aisle for their leadership and commitment to building consensus on a historic package that invests in our nation's physical infrastructure needs. This legislation will create jobs, enhance economic growth and competitiveness, improve the health and safety of the American people, and modernize our infrastructure for the 21st century, without raising taxes.
"The Problem Solvers Caucus has worked closely with our Senate allies over these past months to help turn the bipartisan infrastructure framework into legislation. The Senate did its job. Now it's time to build on this momentum and expeditiously take up the infrastructure bill in the House with a stand-alone bipartisan vote.
"This will deliver a win for every American and show the nation, and world, that we have Members in both parties who are united in working together to solve problems in Washington."
