The Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal Can’t Be the End of the Road.
The bipartisan deal falls short when it comes to electrifying America’s #SchoolBus fleet, the investment proposed would only replace 4% of the diesel school buses in service today. We need MORE to #BuildBackBetter. #ForAmericaByAmerica
There are almost 500K diesel school buses in service throughout the U.S. Electrifying our fleet is essential, and the bipartisan deal only allocates $2.5b, enough to replace roughly 4% of buses. #ForAmericaByAmerica #BuildBackBetter
#EV school buses must be deployed in a way that is equitable, secures existing driver & maintenance jobs, and is made in America. The bipartisan deal falls short. #ForAmericaByAmerica #BuildBackBetter
America’s #PublicSchools are crumbling, with over $270B estimated in deferred maintenance costs. The bipartisan deal barely allocates funds for #EnergyEfficiency upgrades, and none for retrofits. We need more. #ForAmericaByAmerica #BuildBackBetter
As America’s schools across the nation are crumbling with over $270 billion in deferred maintenance, the bipartisan deal has $0. We need to do more to #BuildBackBetter. #ForAmericaByAmerica
#DYK the level of water funding reported for lead service pipe replacement in the bipartisan deal would cover the replacement of just 1 in 4 #LeadPipes in the U.S.? We need more to #BuildBackBetter.
The Biden administration estimates 6 to 10 million homes still use #LeadPipes. The bipartisan deal only allocates enough funding to replace just 1 in 4 lead pipes in the U.S. We need more to #BuildBackBetter. The bipartisan deal only allocates enough funding to replace just 1 in 4 lead pipes in the U.S. We need to remove ALL of these service lines to #BuildBackBetter and ensure #CleanWaterForAll. #ForAmericaByAmerica

Transit = jobs & opportunity nationwide. Investing more in transit will boost #AmericanManufacturing and create good, #union jobs across the transportation industry and across the country. We need more to #BuildBackBetter
