ASBC Comments on Agreement on Partial Infrastructure Agreement

Media Release

The bipartisan deal to arrive at a infrastructure deal is very much a partial deal on behalf of Americans who have been most neglected by America’s policies. While it signals that our government is willing work together towards economic competitiveness on physical infrastructure, it neglects the key tenets of the Administration’s original proposal that prioritize people, such as paid leave, universal pre-K, and credits for poorer families. We remain hopeful that these and other priorities are included in a forthcoming compromise that prioritizes a just and supportive economy for those who need it the most.
