Democrats Deliver: Biden Bridges the Gap, Strikes a Deal with Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework

PHOENIX –– This afternoon, President Biden announced a historic Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework that will create a generation of good-paying union jobs and position the United States to win the 21st century. 

In what will be the largest investment in our infrastructure in a century, this framework will provide massive funding for rail and public transit projects, invest billions in clean energy, provide clean drinking water to communities—including Tribal Nations—across Arizona, and deliver high-speed internet to every home—all without raising a cent from earners making below $400,000 per year. 

Following this historic announcement, Executive Director of the Arizona Democratic Party Charles Fisher release the following statement:

“After years of Donald Trump repeatedly promising and failing to deliver an infrastructure package, President Joe Biden has—with the help of Arizona’s own Senator Kyrsten Sinema—delivered on his promise to invest crucial funding to improve public transit, repair our crumbling roads and bridges, and address the climate crisis while investing in a new, green economy.

“Democrats are delivering on the promises they made to the American people—and they’re only getting started.”
