A Monumental Victory for Brooklyn and NYC:
President Biden Signs Infrastructure Bill into Law
(Brooklyn, NY) -- This evening, President Joe Biden signed the $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure bill into law, which will deliver an additional $550 billion of new federal investments in America's infrastructure over five years, including billions of dollars to our state and city.

Party Chair Rodneyse Bichotte Hermelyn said, "The infrastructure package will deliver much-needed economic relief to New York City and Brooklyn and is a major victory.

This once-in-a-generation investment in our roads, bridges, and transit will help our city emerge from the pandemic stronger, heathier, and more resilient.

We thank President Biden, Speaker PelosiSen. Schumer and our congressional delegation for working to pass legislation that will create good-paying jobs and improve our community for generations to come.

The future of Brooklyn is brighter, and we look forward to working with all Democrats to build back our borough better."
We represent Democrats from every corner of this borough, all part of the largest county party in the country. We are an inclusive and diverse organization with leaders and activists from every neighborhood of Brooklyn.
