BlueGreen Alliance Statement on House Democrats’ Infrastructure Plan
In response to the plan put forward by House Democrats to repair America’s failing infrastructure systems, the BlueGreen Alliance released the following statement from Executive Director Kim Glas:
WASHINGTON, D.C. (February 8, 2018) – “The plan put forward by House Democrats includes much-needed investments in our nation’s infrastructure that will also create quality jobs and make our communities more sustainable and resilient. This blueprint provides a significant public investment and includes key measures like Davis-Bacon prevailing wage provisions to ensure the jobs created are family-sustaining jobs, Buy America provisions to support domestic manufacturing, and prioritizes making our communities and infrastructure systems more resilient.
“These are the kinds of job-creating policies we will be looking for in any plan released by the president in the near future. We need a bipartisan solution to repair these crumbling systems that we rely on every day and that solution must adhere to the principles put forward by House Democrats today.”
