Today, President Biden announced that he reached a deal with a bipartisan group of Senators on a $1.2 trillion infrastructure deal that will be the largest long-term investment in American infrastructure in almost a century.

DFL Party Chairman Ken Martin released the following statement in response: 

“The $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure deal President Biden just negotiated is a tremendous accomplishment that will deliver tangible results for the American people. This historic deal will make lives better for millions by creating good-paying jobs, connecting every home to high-speed internet, removing our nation’s lead service lines, repairing countless roads and bridges and so much more. The deal also makes significant investments in clean, green technology that will help make the United States a global leader in tackling the climate crisis.

“President Biden promised he would unite the American people, defeat the COVID-19 pandemic, and build back better from it. With this historic, bipartisan infrastructure deal, President Biden is delivering on those promises and delivering for the American people.”
