Today’s Action: Demand the senate secure key needs cut out of the infrastructure bill

Yesterday, a bipartisan group of Senators met with President Biden to pitch their negotiations on the infrastructure bill — and Biden signed off on the plan. He did this with the stipulation, however, that the bill be passed in tandem with a reconciliation bill that makes up for priorities cut out of the deliberations.

But we’re still a long way from knowing the final package and, because funding provisions are filibuster-proof, Democrats get to set the terms. We need our leaders to make it absolutely certain that essential needs in the original package remain prioritized.

Universal preschool, community college access, and funding for renewable energy are NOT negotiable. Call (202.224.3121) or email your Senators and demand they guarantee a path forward on critical infrastructure needs cut out of bipartisan conversations!

The original infrastructure package introduced by the Biden Administration included spending solutions that would work to expand our economy, begin to address the climate crisis, and revitalize key aspects of American life. We NEED funding for schools, for bridges and roads, for broadband, and for green energy, plus key supports for children and families. The original proposed plan addresses these necessities, and we cannot allow those solutions to be weakened for a hollow show of cooperation — especially not with people whose stated goal is to see Democrats fail. These priorities are indispensable because our communities’ futures are indispensable.

We need our leaders to keep the American people in the focus. Call or email your Senators and tell them that investing in education and the climate is non-negotiable!
