Manning Statement on Biden’s American Jobs Plan
Greensboro, N.C. – Today, Congresswoman Kathy Manning (NC-06) released the following statement applauding President Biden’s American Jobs Plan.
“As our country rebuilds following the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s essential that we reinvest in our communities, in the American workforce, and in critical public infrastructure. President Biden’s American Jobs Plan is a bold, once-in-in-a-century investment in the future of our country. The Plan appropriately includes the expansion of broadband, the rebuilding of roads, bridges, our electrical grid, our rail and water systems, as well as the modernization of crumbling school infrastructure, and the development of affordable housing. This Plan will create millions of good-paying jobs and will help our country leap forward into the 21st century.
“Since taking office in January, I’ve met with local government and business leaders from across the district who have told me time and again that in order to overcome challenges highlighted by the pandemic and to rebuild our economy, the Sixth District needs investments in broadband, our school systems, affordable housing, public transit, roads, and more. I look forward to working with my colleagues in Congress and the Biden Administration to ensure these priorities are included in this legislation.”
