Peters Statement on President Biden’s American Jobs Plan

DETROIT, MI – U.S. Senator Gary Peters (MI), a member of the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee and Chair of the Subcommittee on Surface Transportation, Maritime, Freight, and Ports, released the following statement on President Biden’s American Jobs Plan:

“In Michigan, we know that our crumbling roads, bridges, sewers and ports are in desperate need of upgrades. Comprehensive infrastructure investments will not only create good-paying jobs and expand skills training and apprenticeship opportunities for Michiganders – but will also provide a much-needed boost to our economy and strengthen our competitiveness on a global stage.

“I look forward to working with President Biden and his Administration as we work to build back better. Investments in infrastructure are investments in Michigan workers: whether it’s repairing our roads and bridges in a sustainable way to withstand the impacts of climate change – closing the digital divide and expanding access to broadband – supporting manufacturers, the majority of which are small businesses – or expanding electric vehicles, particularly for the federal fleet. I’ll continue fighting to ensure Michigan workers and families have the resources needed to both get through this pandemic and emerge even stronger than before.”
