Senator Young opposes infrastructure bill


(WEHT)– Indiana Senator Todd Young says, “We must address our nation’s infrastructure needs.”

Although, Senator Young intends to vote against the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act. He cites concerns over what he called a “reckless” budget from Democrats.

"We can't afford to continue to grow the national debt at this pace, particularly as our economy recovers from the pandemic,” said Senator Young.

Young said he will continue working to improve this bill.

“As I’ve said many times, while I‘m eager for a bill that makes these investments, I’m also committed to doing so in a fiscally responsible way. Having reviewed the Congressional Budget Offices (CBO) estimated fiscal impact of this legislation as currently constructed, and frankly still not being comfortable with a number of the Democratic priorities contained in this version, I will vote no.
