Larson Calls for Infrastructure Package to Boost Economy
Washington, D.C. – Today, Rep. John B. Larson (CT-01) called for an infrastructure package to be taken up as part of the effort to mitigate the effects of COVID-19 on the economy.
“Industries across the United States are being impacted by the spread of the COVID-19. Now is the time for Congress to invest in a comprehensive infrastructure package to spur the economy and help support our small and medium-sized businesses across the country. This package must also include medical infrastructure funding to help the United States be more prepared for mass-infections like this. Our roads and bridges are crumbling and this funding is sorely needed. Investing in our infrastructure is one step that we can take to provide economic relief,” said Larson.
