Statement on House Infrastructure Bill Passage

Statement of Devon Barnhart, Director, OneRail Coalition
On Passage by the U.S. House of Representatives
of the
Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act
November 8, 2021

The OneRail Coalition congratulates Congress on passage of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, which will soon head to President Biden for his signature. This unprecedented investment in America’s future underscores the importance of rail and transit in tackling our nation’s greenhouse gas emissions problem, addresses long overdue passenger rail infrastructure projects, and will support our economic recovery post-COVID. The OneRail Coalition looks forward to working with the Administration on implementation of this legislation.
