Hagåtña, Guam – Governor Lou Leon Guerrero issues the following statement on the passing of the Biden Infrastructure Bill:
“After months of negotiations, our Administration is encouraged by Congress’ passage of the Biden Infrastructure Bill. We commend the Democratic leadership on this success, and we thank both parties for making this historic investment that lays the foundation for continued growth and development both nationally and locally.
I also want to thank Chairman Raul Grijalva of the House Natural Resources who has yet again proven his commitment to Guam and the territories. Since the bill’s inception and also on my last trip to Washington DC, we have been in close communication on the bill’s progress, particularly on the inclusion of infrastructure funding specifically for the US territories. By his leadership, funding for the territories is in the final bill making its way to President Biden.
We look forward to the signing of the Biden Infrastructure Bill into law and the investments we continue to make for all.”
