Honored to stand at the White House this afternoon as @POTUS signs historic investments in infrastructure into law. This funding will help to reduce commute times, improve travel and trade, and protect our communities so we can build upon the bedrock of our American economy.

This is a B(I)F deal for Georgia. We’re going to fix our roads & bridges, expand broadband, invest in public transit, create climate-resilient infrastructure, shorten our commutes, and create good-paying jobs.

Getting big things done for Georgians and the American people. Proud to join @SenOssoff & DeKalb Co. Commissioner @LarryJohnsonD3 at the infrastructure bill signing by @POTUS at the White House today.
