Jeffries and Ryan Celebrate Critical Investments

MONROE – Joined by community leaders from across the Hudson Valley, House Democratic Leader Hakeem Jeffries and Congressman Pat Ryan celebrated the historic, record-breaking investments made for Hudson Valley families as part of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. This critical legislation delivers $20 billion to ensure access to clean drinking water in New York, $11 billion for the MTA and Metro-North, and more than $13 billion to rebuild bridges and highways across the state.

“Last Congress, we passed the most consequential infrastructure bill in decades – now it’s time to put those dollars to work. I’m fighting every day to deliver those resources right here to the Hudson Valley,” said Representative Pat Ryan. “This is a once in a generation chance to rebuild our crumbling infrastructure, remove PFAS from our water, and invest in the future of our community. Leader Jeffries is here because he knows I won’t rest until those funds make their way to our region.”

“The bipartisan infrastructure law is game-changing legislation that is making long-overdue investments in the Hudson Valley and across New York state,” said Leader Hakeem Jeffries. “House Democrats deliver – and the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act is a testament to the tremendous progress made under the leadership of President Biden. Congressman Ryan is playing a leading role in ensuring that this law is making life better for Hudson Valley families, from fixing our crumbling roads and bridges to creating good-paying union jobs. It was an honor to join him in his district.”

Communities across the Hudson Valley are already seeing rapid results from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, with many more projects on the way. Funded projects in the district include:

* $10M for clean bus programs at the Rondout School Valley System
* $7.9M for highway repair in Poughkeepsie
* $7.6M for road paving in Pleasant Valley
* $5.8M in infrastructure grants for Stewart Airport
* $4.4M for paving on the Taconic Parkway in Dutchess County
* $3.8M for highway repair and $3.9M for wall repairs in Highlands
* $3.2M for traffic operations in Middletown
