Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Bill Foster (D-IL) issued the following statement on President Biden’s proposed American Jobs Plan:

“President Biden’s American Jobs Plan prioritizes long overdue and appropriate investments in our nation’s infrastructure and supply chain, while creating millions of good-paying union jobs across the country. I am particularly enthusiastic about the proposals to replace all remaining lead pipes in our drinking water systems, revive our semiconductor supply chain and science infrastructure, and upgrade our power transmission lines to allow for more renewables.”

“The Biden Administration has demonstrated that they are willing to work with Congress in a bipartisan manner to implement these necessary investments.  I look forward to working with my colleagues in Congress to pass this much needed legislation, while ensuring that the Illinois transportation corridor that is so critical to the whole economy gets its fair share of investment and improvements.”
