Tuesday, April 30, 2019

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) released the following statement after meeting with President Trump and congressional leaders at the White House today to discuss a potential federal infrastructure plan:


“I was glad to meet with President Trump and my colleagues in the Senate and House today to discuss the urgent need to invest in our nation’s infrastructure. I told the President that there is a critical need to update Michigan’s roads, bridges, rural high-speed internet, electric charging infrastructure, water and sewer systems, and harbors on the Great Lakes. Any infrastructure proposal should also protect American workers by including strong Buy America protections and prevailing wage requirements. It’s time to get serious about rebuilding America, growing our economy, and creating good jobs in Michigan and across the country.”
