ROSEN HELPS UNVEIL BIPARTISAN INFRASTRUCTURE REPORT WITH MEMBERS OF THE PROBLEM SOLVERS CAUCUS
WASHINGTON, D.C. --Today, Congresswoman Jacky Rosen (NV-03) joined her colleagues on the Problem Solvers Caucus to unveil a report that includes bipartisan policy proposals to tackle infrastructure reform. Congresswoman Rosen is a member of the Problem Solvers Caucus and a member of their Infrastructure task force.
“I’m proud to stand with my colleagues from the Problem Solvers Caucus to propose a bipartisan plan to fix our long-ignored infrastructure needs,” said Rosen. “Together, we can build a stronger 21st century economy - one that works for every single American by incentivizing innovation and investment through public-private partnerships, making smarter investment decisions, and increasing our accountability to taxpayers. I look forward to seeing what we can do together to move this proposal forward for hardworking families in Nevada and all across the country.”
BACKGROUND: “Rebuilding America’s Infrastructure” details bipartisan policy solutions to improve surface transportation, port and inland waterways, aviation, water and wastewater, energy, and communications infrastructure. By modernizing existing user fees, incentivizing private investment, making smarter investments with limited federal dollars, and increasing accountability to taxpayers, this working group believes we can build a 21st Century infrastructure network that will foster a truly 21st Century economy that works for every single American. The Problem Solvers Caucus has endorsed the broad findings of the “Rebuilding America’s Infrastructure” report, but each member’s endorsement does not extend to every individual policy recommendation listed. Congresswoman Rosen does not support increasing the gas tax. The report includes a number of recommendations for raising the revenue to invest in infrastructure, including modernizing user fees and nearly a dozen other options.
