Retirees Applaud Passage of President Biden’s Infrastructure Bill

Statement by Richard Fiesta, Executive Director of the Alliance for Retired Americans, regarding passage of the infrastructure bill:

“Passage of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, H.R. 3684, is a significant victory for all Americans. It will make needed investments to improve public transit, repair our roads and bridges, ensure all Americans have clean drinking water, and combat climate change.

“Investing $39 billion in public transit will make a difference in the lives of millions of older Americans who travel by bus and train.

“Similarly, bringing broadband to every American, no matter where they live, will help the 22 million seniors who lack internet access in their homes today.”
