Democratic Party of Georgia Statement on House Passage of Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal

November 6, 2021

Today, following the final House passage of President Biden’s historic Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal, Congresswoman Nikema Williams, Chair of the Democratic Party of Georgia, released the following statement:

“Georgians sent President Biden to the White House to bring people together and deliver historic progress for our state, and today’s final passage of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal shows that he is delivering on his promise. This extraordinary package will create thousands of good-paying union jobs, make a long-overdue investment in Georgia’s broadband, stimulate our economy, and revitalize our state’s roads, bridges, and transportation — leaving no community in Georgia behind. Thanks to the Biden-Harris administration, Senators Ossoff and Reverend Warnock, and Georgia House Democrats — and not a single Georgia Republican — millions of Georgia workers, small businesses, and families will see a new generation of economic growth and equity.”
