Washington, D.C. — Last night, the U.S. House passed the Bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. Nathalie Rayes, Latino Victory Project president and CEO issued the following statement:
“This is a resounding win for the Latino community and for millions of working families across the country. The bill includes provisions that will bring much-needed benefits to the Latino community by creating more jobs, expanding access to high-speed internet, and improving public transportation. It will strengthen our economy by creating millions of good-paying jobs, and it will keep lowering the unemployment rate by putting more Americans back to work. The bill is a testament to President Biden and the Democrats’ resolve to govern and work hard to deliver results for the American people.
“Now that the House advanced the rule for the Build Back Better Act, we urge members of Congress to pass the bill swiftly to help working families. It’s time to deliver for the American people.”
