NHDP Statement on the U.S. Senate’s Infrastructure Legislation
While Senators Shaheen and Hassan Deliver for New Hampshire, Chris Sununu Is Bashing Much-Needed Investments in New Hampshire’s Infrastructure
Concord, N.H. -- Today, the United States Senate passed bipartisan infrastructure legislation which will make significant investments in New Hampshire roads, bridges, and highways, water infrastructure, coastal resiliency, and high-speed internet.
Senator Jeanne Shaheen and Senator Maggie Hassan were both key negotiators of the deal.
The bipartisan infrastructure deal’s passage came just one day after Chris Sununu bashed the legislation in an interview with radio host Jack Heath. During the interview, Sununu repeatedly criticized the infrastructure deal, which has the support of many Republican Senators and will deliver for communities across New Hampshire.
In response to the passage of this legislation, NHDP Chair Ray Buckley released the following statement:
“Thanks to the leadership of Senator Shaheen and Senator Hassan, this bipartisan infrastructure deal will help expand high-speed internet to Granite Staters and deliver much-needed investments in New Hampshire’s highways, roads and bridges while strengthening cybersecurity and coastal resiliency programs. Meanwhile, just yesterday Governor Sununu bashed this bipartisan deal and the jobs these much-needed investments in infrastructure will create. While Senator Shaheen and Senator Hassan are delivering for Granite Staters, Chris Sununu would oppose a bipartisan deal that will create jobs and grow New Hampshire’s economy.”
