There is strong bipartisan support for rebuilding America's crumbling infrastructure, but not for trillions in new spending unrelated to this issue. It’s time to focus on true infrastructure and take bipartisan action for the American people.
we are at another time for choosing. I refuse to give up and accept that the best days of the GOP – and of America – are a thing of the past. If you won’t either, sign up now.
“To those who say our political system is too broken and can’t be fixed, I would argue that we have already shown a better path forward. And if we can accomplish that here in Maryland, then there is no place in America where these very same principles cannot succeed.”- Governor Larry Hogan
Governor Hogan is calling on Congress and President Biden to deliver for the American people the bipartisan infrastructure proposal that is continuing to gain momentum in the House and Senate. These bipartisan plans have been put forward by the group that Governor Hogan convened in Annapolis for two-day infrastructure summit, including Senator Joe Manchin, Senator Bill Cassidy, Senator Mitt Romney, and the chairs of the House Problem Solvers Caucus. As Chair of the National Governors Association, Governor Hogan launched a national initiative focused on rebuilding America’s crumbling infrastructure.
Politico highlighted Governor Hogan’s role in helping to forge bipartisan infrastructure deals in the Senate and the House Problem Solvers Caucus. According to the report, the bicameral and bipartisan group met at “an overnight summit at the governor’s mansion of renowned centrist Larry Hogan in Maryland this spring” to work together on a framework and to align the approach of the groups in the House and the Senate. At the Summit, Governor Hogan presented to the lawmakers his National Governors Association’ infrastructure initiative, which recommended leveraging public-private partnerships to pay for investments.
As talks between the White House and Senator Capito fail, Governor Hogan joined former Democratic Senator Joe Lieberman, former Democratic Leader Richard Gephardt, former Virginia Republican Congressman Tom Davis, and former National Director of Intelligence Admiral Dennis Blair in a joint No Labels letter to President Biden and congressional leadership urging bipartisan compromise on infrastructure. The group writes, “This is a moment for leaders who believe in the urgency of uniting this divided country, and in finding bipartisan solutions to our toughest problems, to stand up and be counted.
Under Governor Hogan’s leadership, Maryland’s economy has seen one of the greatest turnarounds in America. According to a new study from WalletHub, Maryland’s economy ranks as the seventh best in the nation. Before Governor Hogan took office, Maryland’s economic performance ranked 49th out of all 50 states. During his tenure, Governor Hogan has worked with an overwhelmingly Democratic legislature to attract leading industries to the state, restore fiscal discipline and cut taxes and regulations seven years in a row, including recently passing the largest tax cut in Maryland history.
