Infrastructure Deal a Start, Congress Must Pass American Jobs Plan

WASHINGTON - A bipartisan Senate group and President Biden reached agreement today on a framework for legislation addressing some of the nation’s infrastructure needs.

The following is a statement from Mitchell Bernard, president of NRDC (Natural Resources Defense Council):
