Readout of President Biden, Vice President Harris, and Secretary Buttigieg’s Meeting With Senators on Infrastructure

Press Release:

    Today, President Biden and Vice President Harris met in the Oval Office with a bipartisan group of Senators from the Environment and Public Works (EPW) Committee, and Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg joined virtually, to discuss the critical need for investing in modern and sustainable American infrastructure. The meeting is one of several the Administration plans to conduct on infrastructure with Members of Congress and stakeholders.

    The President, Vice President, Secretary, and Senators established the mutual understanding that America needs to build new infrastructure across urban and rural areas and create millions of good-paying jobs in the process to support the country's economic recovery in the months and years ahead. They had a productive conversation and exchanged constructive ideas to further inform President Biden's economic recovery plans to build back our country better for working families. They also expressed a deep commitment to working across the aisle to deliver infrastructure and jobs to American communities.

    The President, Vice President, and Secretary also shared the Administration's vision for building sustainable infrastructure that will withstand the impacts of climate change and fuel an American clean energy revolution. They also reiterated their commitment to making sure no workers are left behind, underscoring how the Administration will bring construction, manufacturing, engineering, and skilled-trades jobs — with the choice to join a union — directly to the communities that are too often left behind.
