Senator Stabenow on President Biden’s American Jobs Plan

Wednesday, March 31, 2021

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow released this statement on President Biden’s American Jobs Plan that he announced today.


“The American Jobs Plan starts by focusing on making things in America, which means something for Michigan is written on every page! This plan includes investments in American manufacturing, creating an American supply chain for products and technologies, strengthening Buy American laws, promoting electric vehicles and more.


“To say this plan is long overdue is an understatement. Just ask Michigan families who can’t drink their tap water without special lead filters. Or ask residents and small business owners in communities across the state who still don’t have reliable Internet service. Our state has lived through floods, dam and bridge failures, and the collapse of our Great Lakes shorelines. And that’s not saying anything about the dread we all feel with our upcoming pothole season that promises to wreck our tires and throw our cars out of alignment. This plan addresses this failing infrastructure, invests in our next generation of clean energy and electric vehicles and most importantly, will create millions of good-paying American jobs. I look forward to working with President Biden to make these investments in America’s future a reality.”
