Legislature passes joint resolution for National Infrastructure Bank

Mar 12, 2021
Sen. David Miramant

Augusta — The Legislature unanimously approved Thursday, March 11, a joint resolution from Sen. David Miramant, D-Camden, calling on the U.S. Congress to develop and fund a National Infrastructure Bank. SP 297, "Joint Resolution Memorializing The President Of The United States And The United States Congress To Establish A National Infrastructure Bank," was presented by Miramant in front of the full Senate Chamber on Wednesday.

“Here in Maine much of our infrastructure is in disrepair,” said Miramant. “A National Infrastructure Bank that invested in our roads, bridges and other infrastructure projects would generate new, good-paying jobs and bring money back into our economy.”

SP 297 calls on the U.S. Congress to fund a National Infrastructure Bank by using secure, existing U.S. Treasury debt. The bank would be authorized to spend $4 trillion in urgently needed infrastructure projects, such as roads, dams and transit. The proposed bank could generate approximately 25 million new jobs.

Dear good Sen. Dave,

will you please consider sponsoring a Maine State Bill to place a moratorium on 5G

until they pay attention to the research done

to know if it is safe for humans and our pets (and the critters outside) or not?

NH has taken a bold step and in Europe as well.  What about us?

Maybe Chellie Pingree or Valli would go in on it with you? They seem to care.
