Today, National Governors Association (NGA) Chairman Governor Asa Hutchinson of Arkansas and Vice Chairman Governor Phil Murphy of New Jersey released the following statement after the President signed into law the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act:

“On behalf of the National Governors Association, we applaud the President’s signing of the $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure package, which passed out of the Senate in August and the House earlier this month.

“Governors commend Congress for setting aside partisan differences to pass a bill that works for the American people. States and territories stand ready to immediately put these funds to good use to fix and improve our nation’s infrastructure.”
