U.S. Sens. Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), Roger Wicker (R-MS), Pat Toomey (R-PA), Mike Crapo (R-ID), and John Brasso (R-WY) introduced last week the Republican response to President Joe Biden’s American Jobs Plan with their own $568 billion infrastructure framework.
The infrastructure framework covers a five-year period and will serve as a guide while the Senate continues to develop bipartisan infrastructure legislation.
“Republicans and Democrats agree that our infrastructure is in need of repair and expansion. We have an opportunity to develop bipartisan legislation that makes these long-term investments while at the same time driving job creation and economic growth,” Capito, ranking member of the Environment and Public Works (EPW) Committee, said.
