Monday, November 15, 2021

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) released this statement following the passage of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act in the U.S. House of Representatives, a bipartisan bill that will make major investments in the nation’s infrastructure and create millions of good-paying jobs.


This bill will also make the largest single investment ever in the Great Lakes, expand high-speed internet, invest in electric vehicles, and strengthen our Buy American laws. The bill passed the U.S. Senate on August 10th and you can find more information on the bill here.


“We are one step closer to President Biden signing a historic bill to rebuild and modernize America. There is so much in here of critical importance to Michigan—from rebuilding roads and bridges, to the removal of lead pipes, to high-speed internet in every corner of Michigan, to the largest single investment ever made in the Great Lakes. I am also extremely pleased that my legislation to strengthen Buy American laws is included, to ensure that American tax dollars are spent on American products and services.”
