Washington, D.C. – The Payments Leadership Council’s Founding Director Raj Date issued the following statement after the Senate passed the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act.
“Today’s Senate passage of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act is critical progress towards a bipartisan effort to rebuild American infrastructure and strengthen our nation’s economic backbone.
The Payments Leadership Council applauds the significant investment in 21st century infrastructure, particularly fast and reliable access to broadband. This is a critical step toward improving financial access and economic opportunity for tens of millions of Americans in traditionally underserved communities and small businesses around the country. Closing the digital divide will drive economic growth and ensure the United States remains globally competitive.
We urge members of the House to support the bipartisan infrastructure bill and look forward to seeing this historic infrastructure investment become a reality.”
