Kuster, Energy and Commerce Committee Democrats, Introduce Sweeping Infrastructure Package

Washington, DC, May 17, 2019

During Infrastructure Week, Congresswoman Annie Kuster (NH-02) joined the Democratic members of the Energy and Commerce Committee to introduce an infrastructure package to address climate change, expand broadband internet access, and invest in America’s healthcare infrastructure. Rep. Kuster is an original cosponsor of the Leading Infrastructure For Tomorrow’s America Act, or LIFT America Act.

“Failing to invest in our nation’s infrastructure is not an option,” said Kuster. “The LIFT America Act will improve the public safety and support our economic competitiveness in the Granite State. We need to bring America’s infrastructure into the 21st century, and I am proud to help introduce legislation that will make critical investments in our nation’s future. This legislation is an important step to address climate change, expand broadband internet access, and improve our nation’s healthcare system. I urge House leadership to bring this measure to a vote.”

In 2018, Rep. Kuster helped secure over $26 million in federal funding and grants to rehabilitate and improve New Hampshire’s interstate bridge infrastructure and water infrastructure.
