Press Release
“A once-in-a-century crisis calls for once-in-a-century ideas, and President Biden's plan is that kind of big idea,” said Adams.
Washington, D.C. – Congresswoman Alma Adams (NC-12) released the following statement on the release of President Biden's American Jobs Plan:
 
“A once-in-a-century crisis calls for once-in-a-century ideas, and President Biden's plan is that kind of big idea,” said Adams.
 
“The American Jobs Plan would invest in the critical infrastructure our country needs to continue to be a world leader after the COVID-19 pandemic. The American Jobs Plan will rebuild our crumbling infrastructure, improve our country's transportation network, improve health by eliminating lead pipes in our drinking water systems, deliver affordable, high-speed broadband to every American, and so much more. We can't go back to the way things were before - we have to make sure that we're not only creating jobs, but creating good jobs that pay fair wages. This plan does that.”
 
“I am also encouraged to see that the plan addresses equity issues in infrastructure by building and preserving affordable housing, targeting the benefits of climate and clean infrastructure investments to disadvantaged communities, and by investing tens of billions of dollars in our Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). The plan pays for all of these critical investments by making our tax code more equitable so that corporations and the wealthiest Americans pay their fair share. This plan is a great start towards building back better.”
