CONGRESSMAN JIMMY GOMEZ NAMED CO-CHAIR OF HOUSE DEMOCRATS’ JOBS FOR AMERICA TASK FORCES TO CREATE JOBS, ECONOMIC AGENDA
Washington, D.C. – Today, Congressman Jimmy Gomez (D - Los Angeles) announced that he will serve as co-chair for the Rebuilding America Task Force. This leadership role in the House Democratic Caucus Jobs for America Task Forces is a unified effort from the House Democratic Caucus to craft a real legislative agenda that will benefit hardworking Americans and middle-class families.
“President Trump’s flamboyant $1 trillion infrastructure plan has proven to be a hollow promise, leaving America desperate for the very jobs that he committed to create,” said Congressman Jimmy Gomez. “We’re forging a path for the long-term economic investments necessary for working families to get the leg up they need.”
The Rebuilding America Task Force will put Americans back to work by modernizing our nation’s infrastructure, expanding job opportunities in key industries, launching a school construction boom, updating our power grid and water infrastructure, and taking a visionary approach to the projects needed to put our country at the forefront of innovation.
In the coming months, the Rebuilding America Task Force will meet with business and labor leaders, issue experts, and American workers to develop policy goals and solutions that will benefit all Americans. The effort was launched by the House Democratic Caucus.
“Investing in our infrastructure is one of the most effective ways to secure high-paying, long-term jobs for the hardest-working men and women across the country. This effort will produce specific legislation that will rebuild our nation’s crumbling bridges and roads, build schools, and upgrade an antiquated power grid,” said House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley (D-NY). “I’m grateful to Congressman Jimmy Gomez for his leadership in this important effort that will help spur job creation and strengthen our economy.”
