Press Release

WASHINGTON –– U.S. Rep. Elissa Slotkin (MI-08) released the following statement on the urgent need to pass a bipartisan infrastructure bill in Congress. Today, House Democrats announced the framework of an infrastructure plan, and in her State of the State address tonight, Governor Gretchen Whitmer announced a plan to begin making funds available to repair and rebuild Michigan’s roads.

“No matter if you’re a Democrat, Republican or Independent, the urgent need to fix our roads and infrastructure is something we can all agree on,” Slotkin said. “This is a bipartisan issue in our communities, and it should be the same way in Congress — that’s why I’m eager to work with Republicans to pass a bipartisan bill that rebuilds our systems to last, and am glad to see Governor Whitmer continue to push for action to get our roads fixed as soon as possible.”
