Governor Hogan appeared on CNBC to urge President Biden to embrace the current bipartisan infrastructure proposals in the House and the Senate.
These plans have been proposed by a bipartisan group of Senators and members of the House who 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.
Governor Hogan has been focused on gaining bipartisan consensus on a federal infrastructure bill since 2019, when as Chair of the National Governors Association, he launched a national initiative on rebuilding America’s crumbling infrastructure. Many of the proposals of Governor Hogan’s initiative, including incentivizing public-private partnerships to pay for infrastructure, have now been adopted in the House and Senate frameworks.
According to Governor Hogan, President Biden promised the American people that he would work across party lines, and “this is our chance to do it. If we can’t come together on infrastructure, then I’m not sure we’re going to find common ground.”
