FACT SHEET: Georgia Takes Home Huge Wins Under Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal

August 5, 2021

Yesterday, new numbers were released detailing a few of the specific funding allocations Georgia is expected to receive if the Senate passes President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal. The historic bill will make life better for millions of Georgia residents, create a generation of good-paying union jobs, stimulate economic growth, and position the United States to win the 21st century.

“The Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal will be a game-changer for working Georgians,” Rhyan Lake, spokeswoman for the Democratic Party of Georgia, said. “These long-overdue investments will grow our economy, create good-paying jobs, enhance our competitiveness, and make our economy more sustainable, resilient, and just. That’s why an overwhelming majority of Georgians support this bill and the positive impacts it will have on the Peach State for generations to come. Now, both sides of the aisle in Washington must come together, pass the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal, and get this done for the millions of Georgians who will benefit.”
