Maloney Applauds New, Bold Plan to Invest in America’s Infrastructure

Washington, D.C. – Today, House Democrats and the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee released a framework for an expansive, $760 billion investment in America’s infrastructure. The Moving Forward framework will address America’s most urgent infrastructure needs, including repairing America’s failing roads and bridges, expanding access to safe and clean water, creating meaningful, good-paying jobs by supporting U.S. industries and trades, and combatting climate change.

Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney (NY-18), a member of the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee and Chairman of the Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation Subcommittee, gave his strong support of the Moving Forward framework:

“We can all agree: America’s infrastructure needs some serious work. From my first day in Congress, I’ve worked to improve our roads, bridges, railroads and airports here in the Hudson Valley,” said Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney. “I’m proud to have brought back billions of dollars of federal investment for New York’s infrastructure but we’ve still got work to do. I’m pleased to support the Moving Forward framework – a bold plan that will bring our infrastructure into the 21st century, fix our roads, combat climate change, and create good-paying, meaningful jobs right here in the Hudson Valley.”

The Moving Forward framework prioritizes infrastructure investment that is smarter, safer, and made to last. The framework will:

  • REPAIR ROADS: Bring existing infrastructure into a state of good repair and enable the completion of critical projects through long-term, sustainable funding.
  • CREATE JOBS: Create good-paying, meaningful jobs with strong worker protections. Expand job opportunities in clean energy, and invest in energy efficiency.
  • COMBAT CLIMATE CHANGE: Set a path toward zero carbon pollution from the transportation sector to protect our natural resources, reduce greenhouse gas pollution, promote environmental justice, and increase resiliency to climate change.
  • MODERNIZE THE TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM: Ensure a transportation system that is affordable, reliable, efficient and provide access to jobs.
  • CLEAN UP WATER: Provide safe, clean, and affordable water and wastewater services.
  • GET SMART ABOUT SAFETY: Prioritize the safety of the traveling public and modernize the 9-1-1 public safety networks.
  • INVEST IN GREEN: Invest in energy efficiency.
  • EXPAND BROADBAND: Expand broadband internet access and adoption for unserved and underserved rural, suburban, and urban communities.
  • PUT AMERICAN COMPANIES FIRST: Support U.S. industries, including steel and manufacturing, through strong Buy American protections.
