WASHINGTON, D.C.-- This afternoon, U.S. Rep. Grace Meng (D-Queens) joined President Biden at the White House as he signed the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act into law.
"It was an honor to join the President at the White House for this historic bill signing," said Meng. "This bold and bipartisan legislation will repair, overhaul, and modernize our nation's crumbling and aging infrastructure. And it will deliver for New York, providing billions for our roads, bridges, mass transit, airports, high-speed internet, clean drinking water and so much more."
"These investments will improve safety, enhance travel and quality of life, create jobs, and strengthen our economy, and I'm proud to have championed provisions in the bill," added Meng. "Here in Queens and across New York, we depend heavily on our infrastructure, and this type of federal funding is vital for our communities and neighborhoods. It is overdue and will elevate New York and the nation.
I look forward to our city and state benefiting from the upgrades and improvements that this bill will provide for many years to come."
