US House Passes Jobs Creating Transportation, Water Investment

Washington, D.C. (July 1, 2021) – Terry O’Sullivan, General President of LIUNA – the Laborers’ International Union of North America – made the following statement today:

With today’s passage of the INVEST in America Act (H.R. 3684), momentum is building for transformational investment in our nation’s infrastructure that will sustain millions of good union jobs. The bill’s unprecedented increases in funding levels for our highways, roads, and transit as well as water infrastructure will make significant progress in addressing our growing needs for infrastructure investment.

H.R. 3684 will inject $343 billion into roads, bridges, and safety infrastructure and $109 billion to transit. It also includes: $53 billion over the next decade for the Drinking Water State Revolving Fund, $40 billion for the Clean Water State Revolving Fund, and an additional $45 billion to fully replace lead service lines. Coupled with prevailing wage protection, these investments will restore our transportation systems, improve drinking water safety, and create good middle-class union jobs.

LIUNA looks forward to working with the White House and Congress on moving forward with these long overdue investments. It is critical that the full Congress work together towards passage of this bill and the larger bipartisan infrastructure deal that we so urgently need.


The half-million members of LIUNA – the Laborers’ International Union of North America – are on the forefront of the construction industry, a powerhouse of workers who are proud to build the United States and Canada.
