 Chair Nikki Fried highlights historic investments made in Florida, criticizes Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis for attempting to stonewall infrastructure efforts

Today marks the second anniversary of President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. In response, the Florida Democratic Party has issued the following statement:

“President Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law has brought billions of our tax dollars back into the State of Florida, with even more still to come,” said FDP Chair Nikki Fried. “The numbers are eye popping: $13.3 billion towards Florida’s roads and bridges, $1.5 billion towards hurricane resiliency, and $1.1 billion towards rural broadband are just the start of President Biden’s historic investment in Florida’s future.

“Even though they’ve tried to take credit for the infrastructure funding, extremist Republicans like Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis want to keep these critical federal dollars out of the State of Florida; Ron even rejected $24 million dollars of funding for rural communities.
