DeLauro promises Biden will focus on infrastructure

Veteran U.S. Rep. Rosa DeLauro, the new, powerful House Appropriations Committee chairwoman, promised Monday that once President-elect Joe Biden takes office, he will support major investments that should help Connecticut and the region. “I think in addition to transportation, you’re looking at broadband, airports, water projects, et cetera,” she said. “It is roads and bridges and there is a heavy emphasis by the next administration on infrastructure. Why? Because it is a driver of the economy and it results in jobs, and in new technologies, for that matter, which helps to create jobs.” DeLauro said that her staff and Lamont’s staff will be working cooperatively to make priorities for the state. DeLauro believes there is a likelihood of bipartisan support for infrastructure projects.
