Blumenthal Statement on the Senate Moving Ahead on a Bipartisan Infrastructure Agreement

[WASHINGTON, D.C.] – U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) released the following statement after voting to move forward with the bipartisan infrastructure agreement announced earlier today:

“I’ve always been in favor of more money to repair roads, support rail, and improve public transit, so I was happy to vote in favor of opening debate on this bipartisan agreement and look forward to reviewing its details. Our nation’s roads, bridges, rails, waterways, and transit systems are decades-overdue for a major overhaul, and this bipartisan package will help chip away at the massive infrastructure deficit facing Connecticut and our country. But we fail to fully meet the challenges we face at our own peril. I am going to continue pressing for investments in the people that keep our country moving and our economy strong: workforce training, universal paid family and medical leave, and childcare and early learning.”
