Washington, D.C. – Governor Lou Leon Guerrero is in Washington, D.C. after receiving an invitation from President Joe Biden to attend the signing of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. The White House invitation was received right before she was scheduled to return from New York after meetings with bond raters.
Governor Leon Guerrero was among a select group of bipartisan leaders and key business representatives across the country who were instrumental in the negotiations leading up to the bill’s passage.
“It’s a tremendous honor to represent Guam and the territories at this historic ceremony. Guam stands to receive $193 million to improve and modernize local infrastructure while developing new opportunities to address the climate crisis,” said Governor Leon Guerrero.
“I want to thank the Biden Administration for this special invitation. It was great to see my colleagues from the other states as well as Congressional leaders. These resources will go directly to addressing our infrastructure challenges, such as roads, bridges, village streets, and broadband. More importantly, this bill will provide quality jobs for our people.”
Governor Leon Guerrero will return home immediately following the signing ceremony.
