Congressman Dan Kildee (MI-05), Chief Deputy Whip of the House Democratic Caucus, issued the following statement today after the U.S. Senate passed bipartisan infrastructure legislation:
"The bipartisan infrastructure bill delivers billions to improve Michigan roads, rebuild bridges and replace lead pipes. Investing in our infrastructure will make life better for millions of Michiganders, create good-paying union jobs and position the United States to win the twenty-first century against our competitors like China. This bipartisan bill is the largest long-term investment in our infrastructure and competitiveness in nearly a century, and I applaud President Biden and Democrats in Congress for their leadership on this bill.

"While this bill is a compromise, it brings these critical infrastructure investments one step closer to reality. As this bill moves to the House, I look forward to working with my colleagues to pass this much-needed bipartisan infrastructure bill as well as a budget that makes a once in a generation investment in Michigan's working families."
