Problem Solvers Caucus Co-Chairs Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) and Brian Fitzpatrick (PA-1) released the following statement regarding the Senate’s vote to advance the bipartisan infrastructure legislation:
“We applaud our Republican and Democratic Senate allies for their tireless efforts in negotiating a bipartisan physical infrastructure package that will improve the lives of millions of Americans and make important investments to reshape the future of our nation. This deal aligns with the Problem Solvers Caucus ‘Building Bridges’ physical infrastructure framework that helped jumpstart negotiations with the White House in early June.
“With the Problem Solvers Caucus and our Senate partners working together, we are determined to get this deal done to support American workers and businesses and bolster our nation’s economic competitiveness abroad. Upon Senate passage of the bipartisan bill, we call on House leadership for an expeditious, stand-alone vote on this two-party solution for the American people.”
The Problem Solvers Caucus is a bipartisan group in Congress comprised of 58 members – equally divided between Democrats and Republicans – committed to forging bipartisan cooperation on key issues.
