National Infrastructure Bank with PA IPL & JEA

This meeting, recorded Wednesday, May 18, 2022, is part of PA IPL’s ongoing partnership with Jewish Earth Alliance (JEA).

TOPIC:
National Infrastructure Bank with PA IPL & JEA

This joint session with JEA focuses on the work being done to introduce the infrastructure bank in Pennsylvania. Members of the National Infrastructure Bank Coalition present information about the work it has been doing in PA to gain support for HR 3339. This bill creates a National Infrastructure Bank to facilitate the long-term financing of infrastructure projects. One of the co-sponsors is Dwight Evans (D-PA 3).

There is broad and growing grassroots support for HR 3339 across the state as evidenced by the large number of private citizens, elected state and local officials, labor organizations, small business owners, and rail advocates, who are volunteering their time and effort to get HR 3339 the support it needs in from Congress. A National Infrastructure Bank would help fund and maintain green infrastructure necessary for sustainability.

As the Covid-19 pandemic, the breakdown of the domestic supply chain, and the rapid rise of inflation have converged to create a “perfect storm” of economic dislocation, it has created a unique opportunity to reverse decades of neglect of critical infrastructure, by rebuilding manufacturing and the American workforce.
