WASHINGTON, DC - This morning, Congressman Steny H. Hoyer met virtually with the CEO of the Greater Washington Partnership, JB Holston, and members of the Greater Washington Partnership, to discuss the historic regional benefits of the bipartisan infrastructure law, the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, for families across Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia. He released the following statement regarding the meeting:
“I thank JB Holston and leaders at the Greater Washington Partnership for joining me today for an important discussion on how the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act will deliver critical investments for Maryland and our region writ large. The Greater Washington Partnership has played an essential role for our residents and businesses by advocating for important solutions to improving mobility and stronger infrastructure systems, fighting for an equitable economy for all, and setting employers and businesses up for success. I was pleased to speak with them today on how the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act will bolster the great work they’ve been able to achieve over the years and help improve the quality of life for our people – including those right here in Maryland’s Fifth District.
“The bipartisan infrastructure law will award Maryland with nearly $7.4 billion in funding to repair our roads, bridges, public transit, and more. It will help us reconnect our communities that have been historically left out of economic development and takes bold strides in our efforts to mitigate the climate crisis with sustainable infrastructure and promote energy efficiency across the region. The bipartisan infrastructure law also ensures households in our region will have access to clean drinking water. I was pleased to play a key role in securing the enactment of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, and I will continue working to make sure the Build Back Better Act becomes law as soon as possible.
“I look forward to continue to work alongside JB Holston and the Greater Washington Partnership to improve the quality of life for Marylanders, Virginians, and those who live in the District.”
