Washington, D.C. – Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) today released the following statement on President Biden’s American Jobs Plan. The American Jobs Plan addresses key areas for investment to improve our nation’s infrastructure and fight climate change, and includes key elements of two of Majority Leader Schumer’s legislative proposals, Clean Cars For America and Endless Frontier Act.
“Addressing infrastructure, climate and environmental justice together, and creating millions of good paying jobs, is just the right combination to meet head on the challenges that America now faces. Every community, large and small, rural, suburban and urban will benefit from this robust American Jobs Plan. This will not only make clean energy and clean transportation affordable, it will create millions of new jobs with good wages, which always occurs when we invest in infrastructure and manufacturing as we will be doing here. I look forward to working with President Biden to pass a big, bold plan that will drive America forward for decades to come.”
