"Please permit us to say that President Trump hit the nail on the head when constructing this plan to rebuild America's infrastructure. Here at the Energy and Commerce Committee we have been working hard to build out a legislative agenda that promotes broadband deployment and improves our energy infrastructure and environmental protections," said Walden, Upton, Shimkus, and Blackburn. "More than 20 targeted infrastructure bills from this committee have passed the House, and we've got more in the pipeline. Improving our country's infrastructure can be a bipartisan effort, and we stand ready to strap on our work boots and pave the way for success with our colleagues across the aisle. Let's build a stronger America together."
