This week, Georgians across the state saw news of the final passage of President Biden’s historic Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill thanks to the leadership of Senators Ossoff and Reverend Warnock and Georgia’s six congressional Democrats. On Wednesday, Georgia Democrats hosted a virtual press conference celebrating the landmark achievement and highlighting how the package will create thousands of good-paying union jobs, stimulate our economy, and revitalize our state’s roads, bridges, and transportation — despite unanimous opposition from Georgia Republicans.
As Georgia Democrats continue working to pass the President’s Build Back Better Act to continue to lower costs, expand access to health and child care, and cut taxes for middle-class families, media across the Peach State are spotlighting how the popular legislation will transform the lives of millions of Georgians across this state for the better.
