This week, as the U.S. Senate advanced President Biden’s $1.2 trillion Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal — the largest long-term investment in America’s infrastructure and global competitiveness in nearly a century — leaders across Georgia highlighted how the bill will create a generation of good-paying union jobs, help our businesses compete in the global economy, and not cost a single dime for Georgia families making under $400,000 a year.
Last Friday, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg was joined by Brian Kemp’s Transportation Commissioner in metro Atlanta to discuss how the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal will bring home big wins for Georgia jobs, roads, bridges, and transit.
On Thursday, the Democratic Party of Georgia hosted a virtual roundtable with labor, business, and elected leaders from across the Peach State, where they discussed the economic progress Georgia has made since Democrats took control of the White House and Congress and urged Georgia Republicans to join the 69 Senators who voted to advance the Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill.
