Miller-Meeks Statement on Infrastructure Package

November 5, 2021

 

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Today, November 5th, 2021, Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks (IA-02) released the following statement after voting NO on the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act:

“I have been calling for a fully-funded bipartisan bill that would improve our bridges, roads, broadband, locks, dams, broadband, and the electric grid. I will not support a bill that is directly tied to a multi-trillion dollar reckless tax and spend package that increases inflation and had no Republican input, even though Congress is evenly divided. We could have passed a clean infrastructure package already on a bipartisan basis like the Senate did and found reasonable ways to pay for it. Instead, the majority decided to play politics and hold good ideas hostage to push through their agenda in a partisan manner.”
