As you know, we face an infrastructure crisis of historic proportions. Although it’s reassuring to see bipartisan agreement about the need to address this pressing challenge, a truly American infrastructure proposal must also boost American workers. Despite
all the talk, the President’s infrastructure proposal was silent on Buy America. So, I introduced H.R. 2755, the Buy America 2.0 Act, to require that all federally-funded infrastructure projects use materials made here in America. The legislation is supported
by the International Association of Machinists & Aerospace Workers, Alliance for American Manufacturing, BlueGreen Alliance, AFL-CIO, and Transportation Trades Department, AFL-CIO. I encourage you to sign on as a cosponsor.
