Young: Infrastructure Proposal Welcome News for the ‘Crossroads of America’

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Todd Young (R-Ind.) today issued the following statement regarding the President’s infrastructure proposal:

“Known as the ‘Crossroads of America,’ Indiana is a logistics, manufacturing, and transportation hub. Modernizing and investing in our infrastructure system is critical for us to remain competitive. The administration’s proposal strives to reward states that secure new non-federal infrastructure revenue, such as Indiana did in 2017, placing the Hoosier-state in the driver’s seat within the confines of this infrastructure proposal. By streamlining onerous permitting regulations, empowering states to invest in their own infrastructure priorities, and significantly investing in rural America, this proposal is welcome news for Indiana as we work to ensure our state is equipped for the jobs of today and tomorrow. I look forward to robustly studying this proposal with my colleagues on the Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee in the coming weeks.”
