Letter to Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader Hoyer - House Members Make Case for Bipartisan Infrastructure Legislation as a Top Priority

Dear Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader Hoyer:

We write today to express our desire to work with your offices and the relevant committees to move quickly on a series of infrastructure bills that reflect the issues we campaigned on. We have a unique opportunity to take the momentum from the 2018 election and turn that into legislative action for the American people.

"Many Democrats made infrastructure investment a top priority on the campaign trail, which led to us successfully taking back control of the House of Representatives. This issue broadly unites our Caucus along with many of our partners from labor organizations to industry associations. Our efforts can help create valuable, well-paying jobs throughout our country, while improving the quality of life for millions of Americans. These efforts would also expand and improve the roads we take to school and work, increase access to employment, and protect the environment.

"Now that President Trump has reopened the government, we ask that your teams immediately move forward on a series of infrastructure bills. Let's show the American people that we heard their message last year. Our plan of attack must focus on immediate and bipartisan ideas, such as modernizing our nation's electrical grids, investing in cost-saving energy-efficiency programs, reforms for our ports and water infrastructure, transit improvements, and a host of other problems that have festered due to inaction.

"The committees of jurisdiction have only just begun their work on crafting a larger package that addresses long-term funding issues and provides certainty for our communities. But while we await action on this product, there are a host of things that we can work on now that complements the work of the Transportation and Infrastructure and Ways and Means Committees. After working to get back to the majority for eight years, let's show the American people that we are the party that solves problems.

"Thank you for your attention on this matter. We stand ready to work with you on advancing these needed reinvestments in America's infrastructure.

Sincerely,
Stephanie Murphy
