Casey: Compromise Needed to Rebuild PA Roads and Bridges

WASHINGTON, DCU.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA), Chairman of the Joint Economic Committee, released the following statement after the Senate defeated a procedural motion to begin debate on the Rebuild America Jobs Act:

“Pennsylvania roads and bridges are in need of repair and new construction jobs will put Pennsylvanians back to work.  Two different approaches to rebuilding infrastructure were defeated today in the Senate.  I am encouraged that bipartisan talks are ongoing to find additional solutions to repair roads and bridges in Pennsylvania and across the country.  I hope that the Senate can come together soon to create jobs and rebuild our infrastructure.”
