More Than 100 Associations, Trade Groups & Unions Endorse Bipartisan Infrastructure Bill Negotiated by Senator Collins

Washington, D.C.— More than 100 industry associations, trade groups, and unions representing employers, workers, farmers, governors, mayors, and many others have announced their support of the bipartisan infrastructure bill.  The legislation represents the most significant investment in American infrastructure since the establishment of the Interstate Highway System in the 1950s.

 

“This bill is good for America,” said Senator Collins.  “The broad array of organizations in support of this historic infrastructure package reflects the benefits it will have for our roads, bridges, airports, seaports, rail, water treatment systems, and broadband across the country.” 

 

Senator Collins is one of the 10 Senators—five Republicans and five Democrats—who negotiated the infrastructure package.  She focused on the areas of broadband expansion and funding for highways and bridges.  The other nine negotiators were: Senators Rob Portman (R-OH), Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ), Joe Manchin (D-WV), Mitt Romney (R-UT), Mark Warner (D-VA), Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH), Bill Cassidy (R-LA), and Jon Tester (D-MT).
