On Monday, the President will host a bipartisan bill signing ceremony for his Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal, the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. The President will be joined by Members of Congress who helped write this landmark economic growth bill and by a diverse group of leaders who fought for its passage across the country, ranging from Governors and Mayors of both parties to labor union and business leaders.
At the signing ceremony, the President will highlight how he is following through on his commitment to rebuild the middle class and the historic benefits the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal will deliver for American families: millions of good-paying, union jobs for working people, improvements in our ports and transportation systems that strengthen supply chains, high-speed internet for every American, clean water for all children and families, the biggest investments in our roads and bridges in generations, the most significant investment in mass transit ever, and unprecedented investments in clean energy infrastructure.
In the coming weeks, the President, Vice President, and Cabinet will continue to travel the country to communicate how the law will help communities, grow the economy, and position America to compete in the 21st century.
Background to be given from a White House official:
- In addition to being joined by members of Congress from both sides of the aisle who negotiated the original framework with him and fought to make the bill a reality, the President will also be hosting representatives of the incredibly diverse coalition that pushed for the bill across the country.
- Coming after his visit to the Port of Baltimore, the President will also emphasize the array of steps he and his administration are taking thanks to the bipartisan deal to build on the hard work he and his team have been doing to strengthen supply chains and address bottlenecks in moving goods across the country.
- And he will reiterate that a large body of experts have shown that these infrastructure investments will help to act against inflationary pressures by making it easier to receive the unparalleled volume of goods that need to be moved after we achieved the re-opening of the economy this summer.
