Marco Rubio And Rick Scott Double Down On Opposition To Infrastructure Investment While Floridians Learn It Will Lead To More Jobs And Safer Roads

The bipartisan Infrastructure Investment And Jobs Act will be a major boost for Florida’s economy by creating good paying jobs across the state, repairing roads and bridges to cut commute times and save Floridians money, expanding broadband internet to every Floridian, and much more.
