STATEMENT: Rep. Gallego on Voting ‘Yes’ to Pass the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act

WASHINGTON, DC—Rep. Ruben Gallego (AZ-07) released the following statement on his vote supporting passage of the Senate amendment to H.R. 3684, the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act.

Statement from Rep. Ruben Gallego:

“President Biden and this Democratic majority were elected to bring real, tangible change that could be felt in all corners of the country. The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act does that by providing critical funds to rebuild Arizona’s roads, bridges, and public transit and expanding access to reliable broadband and clean water for all communities. I was proud to join my House colleagues in voting to pass it tonight.

“But delivering on President Biden’s agenda means passing all of the President's agenda. If we are serious about putting middle class American families first, combating climate change, improving Americans’ access to housing, health care, and childcare, and building generational wealth--especially in Black and Brown communities --we must pass the Build Back Better Act. 

“Our majorities were sent to Washington to deliver on the transformational policies in both pieces of legislation. I call on my House and Senate colleagues to support President Biden’s agenda and swiftly pass the Build Back Better Act. We cannot waste this opportunity to deliver for American families.”
