Statement of Congressman Ed Case on Final House Passage of the $1 Trillion Bipartisan Infrastructure Plan and on Advancement of the $1.75 Trillion Build Back Better Package
Washington, November 5, 2021
(Washington, DC) – Congressman Ed Case (HI-01) tonight released the following statement following the historic vote in the House:
“Late tonight I joined a majority of my U.S. House colleagues in voting for final passage of the historic $1 trillion Bipartisan Infrastructure Plan, our largest-ever investment in America’s roads and bridges, water infrastructure, climate resilience projects, internet access and much more,” said Congressman Ed Case (HI-01).
“For our Hawai'i, this means over $2 billion dollars in federal investment in our own crumbling infrastructure and in the thousands of jobs and economic generation it will yield.”
The bill passed the House on a bipartisan basis and now goes directly to President Biden, who has stated that he will sign it into law immediately.
“I also voted with a majority of my House colleagues to advance the $1.75 trillion Build Back Better package, which would be our largest-ever investment in climate change and our social safety net”, said Case. “We are on course to pass this equally historic bill out of the House and send it to the Senate the week of November 15th, subject to Congressional Budget Office confirmation of the measure’s revenues and expenses.”
