Statement of Donald C. Fry, President and CEO, Greater Baltimore Committee, on Passage of Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework

“The Greater Baltimore Committee (GBC) commends U.S. Senators Ben Cardin and Chris Van Hollen for their tireless efforts on President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Framework. It’s time to tackle long-overdue improvements to our transportation and infrastructure in Maryland, the region and nationwide. The Senate’s passage of this significant legislation is an encouraging sign that compromise and bipartisan support can successfully address our nation’s pressing needs. Hopefully, the House of Representatives will join in this effort without unnecessary delay. The GBC looks forward to working with elected officials in modernizing our infrastructure, creating an equitable transportation system, providing broadband access and improving roads, transit, bridges, greenspaces and more. The passage of this bill is a step forward in the nation’s economic recovery and presents an opportunity to improve the quality of life for all.”
