Budget Reconciliation Bill Means Historic Investments in America’s Working Families

Statement from AFL-CIO Acting President and Secretary-Treasurer Liz Shuler on the budget reconciliation bill:

To build back better, we must be bold. And that means unparalleled investment in America’s working families. The $3.5 trillion budget resolution is what we need to continue on the path toward making our country whole again. From investing in working families, education, paid leave, child care, clean energy jobs and game-changing infrastructure projects to the creation of a long overdue path to citizenship, expansion of health care access and labor law enforcement with real penalties, this budget resolution is a vital part of President Biden’s Build Back Better agenda that has already been such a lifeline for our economy. We fully support this bill and look forward to its passage.
