WASHINGTON – Congressman Steve Cohen (TN-09) went to the House floor this evening to urge his Congressional colleagues to support the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) already passed in the Senate.

In his floor remarks, Congressman Cohen said in part:

“What people should not forget is that we need to vote for the bipartisan infrastructure bill that’s got 17 Republicans on it from the Senate. I’ve broken with my Progressive Caucus to vote for it because it creates jobs and it’s the right thing for America. And my Republican colleagues should break from their caucus and commit to voting for the bipartisan infrastructure bill.”
