US Senate Passes the Bipartisan Infrastructure Deal

Washington, D.C. (August 10, 2021) – Terry O’Sullivan, General President of LIUNA – the Laborers’ International Union of North America – made the following statement today:

We applaud the U.S. Senate’s bold, historic action in passing legislation modeled on the Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework. The legislation reflects what would be one of the most significant and largest investments ever in America’s infrastructure by addressing critical transportation, water, energy and broadband needs. The legislation would create hundreds of thousands of good, family-supporting construction careers, help restore our nation’s infrastructure to global greatness, and build a lasting legacy for generations to come.

For far too long we have starved our country of the infrastructure investment the American people want, need and deserve. We must seize this opportunity. It is time to get the job done so that LIUNA members, who are ready, willing, and able, can get to work now building America and securing our future. We urge the U.S. House of Representatives to avoid delays, pass the Senate bill and send it to President Biden’s desk.
