Statement from NYS Democratic Chairman on Today's Historic Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework

For Immediate Release: June 23, 2021

President Biden and Democrats Deliver Infrastructure Framework That Will Create Good-Paying Union Jobs and Position the United States To Win the 21st Century

NASSAU COUNTY, NY: New York State Democratic Party Chairman Jay S. Jacobs has released the following statement:

"Elected on a promise to find common ground and get things done, President Biden has delivered. After four years of gridlock spearheaded by President Trump and Republicans, today’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework is the largest investment in our infrastructure in a century. It’s a historic investment in public transit, clean energy transmission, clean drinking water, and it’s going to make life better for millions of people, while positioning American workers, farmers, and businesses to compete and win in the 21st century.

This commitment mirrors what we already know here in New York State where Governor Cuomo and New York Democrats have committed to a $306 Billion Infrastructure Plan that is the largest in our State's history and the most ambitious plan in the nation.

From containing a deadly pandemic to investing in our future, the message to all New Yorkers is clear: When it matters most, Democrats deliver. New York Democrats deliver."
